I took a look at your tank photo, and with its current state there is no way I would expect that to work.
If you desire a look at a "heavily" planted tank, take a look at my aquarium photos. My 90 gallon and my 65 gallon would be considered heavily planted, but keep in mind that it also means you would have to cover the 3 areas of the tank, front to back... (upper, middle, lower ranges). What I would call your tank would be "sparsely planted" and wouldn't consider it well planted enough for your list of fish even without the gourami.
Plants are not the only decor that works to create territory. You can also use rock built up into caves, tunnels, etc. along with the plants to create territory.
