New to the hobby

Hi, I'm New to the hobby. My current setup is a marina 10 gallon l.e.d. aquarium. I have black gravel mixed with ada amazonia. I run the marina slim 15 filter filled with lava rock and ceramic rings instead of the cartridges and a fluval edge sponge as prefilter.
The fauna is composed by:
1 halfmoon betta
6 galaxy danios
2 amano shrimps
20/25 cherry shrimps
1 nerite snail
2 assasin snail
The flora:
java fern
Java moss
Dwarf Sagittaria
And 2 varieties of cryptocoryne

What do you guys think?

I'm digging that drift wood, and I think that crypt in the back will look great once it grows in more. How old is the tank?

Do you have a lot of pest snails? I'm asking because 2 assassin snails and only one other nerite doesn't seem sustainable for the assassins.

P.S. Welcome to the hobby. Just beware of multiple tank syndrome and you'll do fine

Thank you! The tank is 5 months old. And I have just a few pests snails. But the snails are doing fine, I feed 3 times a week with blood worms the whole tank so the snails eat as well. I can't wait for one more tank, the 6 gallon long Mr aqua
