Can a Jack Dempsey exist in the same tank as a Bala Shark?

Just a quick question. I wanted to put him in the same tank, but I don't want him killing him, or the Rainbow shark. Thanks.

Not generally.

In a very large environment, say 280 gallons or more, with an adult Bala and a juvenille Dempsey, then you might pull it off for a while.

But otherwise, forget it.
