Welcome to the forum

The neon rainbows and danios are way too big and active for such a small tank. For a ~15 gallon tank, I would only go with the dwarf corys, a school of ember tetras and a centerpiece fish, like a dwarf gourami.

On a 60L tank, you should only need one filter. 600 L/h is plenty. Internal filters don't hold too much media, but there will be plants in the tank so the combination ought to be able to handle that bioload just fine.

Dwarf gouramis are pretty small. If you want to go smaller there are sparkling gouramis.

I was not able to see your aqadvisor link. I remember when the guy first made that site. It's just a tool - just because it says something is okay doesn't mean that it will be okay. There's more to stocking than algorithms.

yeah cherry barbs are nice but i read that they can be a bit nippy?
Generally they are not, but they can be when improperly kept (too small of a tank, too small of a school). I would not get them for your tank.
