10 Gallon re-scape

Here are a couple pics of my 10 gallon quarantine tank. This tank was a bare bottom tank with a sponge filter until a few hours ago. I found the rocks yesterday and thought they would look good. The plants are just a few from other tanks for now. Don't mind the scratches, like I said it used to be my quarantine tank

Please let me know what you think.
Also, if anyone has some riccia or HC they want to get rid of, cheap, please let me know.

Not bad of a scape, to be honest your tank will look a lot better if you switched the substrate with a fine substrate, for instance like white sand would make an outstanding layout.

Yeah, the substrate is just pea gravel I had leftover from another project. I plan on switching it with some flourite asap. For now there is no co2 and no heater, just water, plants, rocks, and an OLD p.o.s. hob filter.

What type of rock is that? I love the way it looks!

Did you acid test the stone for lime and calcium?

I have no idea, I found it in a field.

No I didn't, How would I go about doing that? I have never used rocks that I "found" most are store bought.
