Red Tails & Balas

I noticed that this question had been asked a while back in the Bala Shark section, but a clear answer was never left. I currently have one RTS and one Gold GouramI in a 75 g tank. I know the Balas get big, but my main concern is the interaction between them and my RTS. I'd really appreciate any thoughts and wisdom on the topic.

kayleigh, a bala in your size tank, isn't going to work for long and if he can catch the fry, he will eat them

I currently have my RTS, Bubbles, with 2 balas, Chip and Dale, who are about his size. They get along fine.
