id be careful, watch for aggression between the 2. I've kept I think 2 or 3 knife fish and they where the weakest things ever and so fragile and they where so weak I had to save them from the filter

If you can take a closer look in the 1st and 2nd picture, you can see the teeth marks of the gar.
In that case I’d really be cautious and separate. Atleast make sure the gar isn’t hungry ever.

A healthy Clown Knife fish is not fragile at all.
