Substrate too deep?

In my ten gallon? I tried to follow the inch-for-each-layer "rule," but now I'm afraid that there won't be enough swimming room. Feedback, plz.

I think it'll work OK. What are you planning with your setup.

Thanks, I hope it'll be okay. I'm planning a hardscape with rocks of various size and low-light plants. For livestock, I plan to have three platies and five white cloud minnows. Though these are small fish, I want to make sure that they have enough room to swim around, comfortably. But, if you experienced planted aquarists think it looks ok, then so do I. Thanks!

Just make sure that you either get all male platies or have lots of spare tanks to set up for babies... they're worse than rabbits LOL

I agree, substrate looks fine.
