Those Denison's Barbs would really rather be in a group, &, as they push 4" apiece, they're not really getting up enough speed in a 36 gallon tank. I would leave both filters on there, get rid of the Barbs, add 2 more Cory's, and 4 more Neons. Then replace the plastic plants with the real thing, as real plants help filter your tank too, as well as providing lots of other benefits. I'm surprised the Neons aren't upset with the extra water flow, but, I would remove the HOB 40 after a couple weeks of putting real plants in. I think the Gouramis would like that a lot better too. You might consider also removing the Platies or Mollies and adding 4 more Corys, instead of just 2 more; they like their little groups as well.
