Hardscape advice for 10 gallon

Setting up a 10 gallon tank. No specific theme. Should I add another huge rock to the right side of the tank(towards the drift wood). Plants are a large range for e parvula, s.repens, java moss, elodea, wisteria and couple of mid ground.

I would say no to the rock. I don't like packed aquariums that are full though. A 10 gallon already has a small space as is.

On the hardscape. I am not sure what the focal point is. Is is the wood or rock? I think the big rock doesn't make sense.
I prefer bigger slope less negative space.
Take care of leaf size in such a small tank to maintain scale.

Quick question: How many pounds of dragon stone did you end up using?
