Filter swapping, switching and replacing

I got my 55g tank with a TopFin 75 filter. The noise is horrendous. About two and a half months ago I installed a Fluval 306 canister.

How safe is it to remove the top fin filter completely? The tank finished cycling a few weeks ago and I currently have a light bioload (6 small cichlids and a fourline pictus cat).

I also plan on getting another Fluval HOB, to make it two Fluval HOBs and the canister. I just need the noise to end.

Fish. That is all.

You should be okay but I would monitor your levels closely as you are removing a filter which means less bacteria.
