River Roots

I decided to redo my 10 gallon aquarium recently. It had a few plants in it but I hadn't been taking very good care of it and I figured I'd take it apart and restart from scratch. This is what I got so far.

After messing with the substrate

I built a slope out of the rocks, there is mineralized top soil beneath them from a while back. The fish that are in the tank are: 5 Neon Tetras, 1 Zebra Danio, 1 Blue Danio, 2 Cory Cats (Salt and Pepper).

After rescape

This is what I got so far for the re-scape. Any comments or ideas are welcome! I have a nano CO2 diffuser in place with a DIY reactor. I also am dosing Leaf Zone (Iron) weekly.
