Taking a big chance there.

Yes you are. There is a very real risk that the dempsey will kill the gourami.

jack dempsey's are very territorial and highly aggressive. i would opt for something else if i were you.

Is there somewhere you can move the gourami? Even if he hasn't been killed yet, he will be highly stressed as he knows what danger he's in. It's like putting you in a cage with a bear and hoping for the best.

I have to agree...separate the 2, you are just asking for trouble, especially since you have already seen some aggression.

You always want to pay attention to the actions of fish together. There are already signs that these two aren't going to get along. I would go with your gut feeling on this one and from you have witnessed I would say that this is not a good idea to have them together.
