New betta setup

Just wanted to post a pic of my new 10-gallon setup. Upgraded from a 1.5-gallon. Definitely worth it as my little guy perked up immediately. Got home from a fishing trip today and brought home some cool river rocks to spice up the decor. After disinfecting them i set them up and he instantly started checking them out and swimming under the tunnels. Hopefully my java fern will anchor to the center tunnel and begin to propagate so I can divide it around the tank. I'm also waiting to see if some aponogeton bulbs I got from wal mart will sprout. Anyways I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out. Once I get all my live plants like i want it will look better. What do you all think?

Close up of my little guy. His fins are a little beat up from his old tank. I expect them to heal up soon.

I love it. A very clean, minimalist approach but has a a nice little playground in there to explore.

I may actually get some rocks and create similar decorations. The ones at the pet store seem way overpriced for what they are. What was your disinfection method for them?

thanks for the feedback everyone - i appreciate it. I will have a few more live plants in there and possibly a piece of driftwood..this tank has been slowly developing over the weeks. When i gathered the rocks i made sure i took them from the riffle areas in the river i fish at to make sure they were completely smooth and rounded with no sharp edges. My little guy's fins are already beat up so I didn't want to add any sharp or rough surfaces to the tank. I also wanted a smooth, hard surface so i wouldn't have to worry about a porous rock absorbing and possibly retaining bleach. Anyways, to disinfect the rocks i dunked them in a bleach/water solution for a few hrs and then rinsed them thoroughly after that. towel dried and then allowed to sit for 20-30 minutes. Then i dunked them again in regular water with dechlorinator for about 10 minutes before finally placing in tank. My fish seems fine so I must have done something right. Now i just got geta those fins all healed up.
