New NPT

So I had this tank laying around so I gave it to my neighbor who I already helped set up a different planted tank. He wanted a small tank, but didn't want to do a lot of work so I did the best with my knowledge and made it into a NPT, meaning there is a layer of dirt. This tank isn't mine, but is setup by me so it is my work. This is my first real attempt at an aquascape, I tried to keep it on budget for my neighbor and I believe I achieved that.

Tank: Aqueon Bow front 5 gallon
Hardscape: River rocks and manzanita wood (I collected it)
Equipment: Tetra PF10, 13w 6500k bulb, heater will be add soon
Flora: Rotala rotundifolia, crypt wenditii red, crypt parva, mixed moss, and I also think there is rotala macandra which will most likely die. Dwarf sag will be added throughout the middle and more stems will be purchased so the tank will be filtered from plants
Fauna: betta will be added soon, MTS will be added soon. Shrimp may be added depending on the betta.

It was Dr. Earth, but it didn't have any ferts or manure though i believe it had earth worm castings, which are great for plants, so hopefully the plants do well.

Floating plants were also added to help suck up some nutrients.
