1 to 2 lbs isn't going to be enough rock. You need at least 10 lbs for a 10 gallon for proper filtration as well as a small power head and a skimmer.
As far as stocking the peppermint shrimp will be fine, but what convict goby are you looking to get. Some are suitable for a small tank, but an engineer goby can also be called a convict goby, and they get way to large for 10 gallon
