Hello I just planted a 20 gallon tank a day ago with the dimensions of 24'' by 12 1/2'' by 16'' I would like to hear your feedback on the tank and if I should add other plants to make the tank look better. The plants in the tank are as follows:

2 Java Fern
2 Amazon swords
1 Pack of Java Moss

Java fern shouldn’t have their rhizomes planted, they’ll rot. Tie or superglue them to the wood
Try some easy stem plants like bacopa or hygrophila in the back instead

Could I get some flat stones out of a creek and attach the plants to that?

It's possible but I would be a bit wary about doing that. A lot of creeks have tons of parasites, worms, and bugs that you don't want in your tank.
