I agree with redchigh and byron completely. When I saw your list of fish in a 25 gal tank, I was in shock. Which I am not blaming you, you just might not have known or had been incorrectly informed by someone.
I mean the tank would be stocked (even possibly overstocked) with just the platy, guppy, molly, danios, and ADFs.
Dont know what kind of pleco you have, but I am going to guess its one of the larger species in which a 25 gal is way too small (not to mention they have huge bioloads). The pleco & the loaches, they need a MUCH larger tank. And as redchigh said, they need a larger group for the loaches.
I'd think the gourami would be okay with the neons, as neons from my experience are rather slow compared to other tetra, at least when they arent stressing out. Dont know what kind of gouami you have, but some require a much larger tank as well. But the other tetra could stress the gourami out, if not them then the hyper guppies for sure.
Are you able to set up a second tank? Setting up a 55 gallon and transfering some of your current fish to it would be a great option. Or is it possible to re-home some of those fish? How long have you had this many fish in that tank? How long has the tank been set up?
With that many fish in that size tank, I doubt there is ample room or reason for the tetras to school.
