I think it looks good. What fish do you plan on getting?
I’m not sure yet, what do you think would look good in it?

Hard to say, Cory's are cool but they like a sand substrate. You could look at a pair of Honey Gouramis or a pair of Bolivian Rams. I would say start doing research on fish and find ones that aren't going to grow too big and will work in a 10 gallon tank. There's too many options.

Those rocks look hollow, so if the fish you get can fit in them, then it is a good thing to have in the tank for exploring and hiding. But I always check the insides for rough edges. with fish like a neon tetra, it won't matter as much. but with fish like kuhli loaches, they can scrape there barbles and slime coat up and get stuck in some decorations, so I try to be careful. I see a lot of plastic plans. Once again, a fish like a tetra would be ok, but a long-finned fish like a betta can rip its fins on them. I only use silk plants.

You don't have to change anything, just be aware that long-finned fish may not be the best choice.
