HoB to sponge filter?

Hey y'all-

Looking for advice on filtration. I've been running my 10g with both a hob and a hygger single sponge filter for about two months now with the goal of removing the hob entirely. I'm now wondering if that's a good idea. Will the single sponge provide enough filtration?

Inhabitants: 1 mystery snail, 3 female guppies, 5 pygmy rasboras.

Tank: 2 filters- aqueon quiet flow 10 and hygger single sponge. Heavily planted.

For a 10 gallon probably so. Remember that more filtration is a good thing.
