Yes, removing the barb from this combo is best. The species in the Rosy clade of Hyphessobrycon do well with those you now have, and several will add some nice red/mauve colouration. Bleeding Heart Tetra (the largest of these), Roberts tetra or Rosy Tetra. These three should be fine with the others and esp gourami, as they are not known as fin nippers though one member did have BH nip angels so be cautious.
