The older shark will see it as a threat and likely stress the younger one to the point it will cause problems or at worst death.

The tank would need areas that both fish can claim as their territory and also for hiding should aggression show.
I'm going to wait until the older one dies it seems like it will be soon he usually just lays on the bottom until feeding time

This species lives to 15 years, assuming it is healthy and in the proper environment. At 4 years it is still quite young. And Tazman is quite correct, never put two together. You can read more in the profile, click the shaded name Red Tailed Shark.
