No, it's my luck, Acaras are usually peaceful. Wonder if I could get a fish to knock him down a peg or two??

Generally they are peaceful. You shouldn't be worried.

If you get a new fish get a fish that won't take his bullying Take the acara out of the tank. Rearrange the tank add the new fish then add the acara

I want to get a EBJD but I'm worried, the acara is fairly big like 3.5" compared to a baby Dempsey. What do you guys think?

EBJD will not work. A regular Jack yes but EBJD's are very passive and extremely sensative to stress. Sine your acara is such a bully I doubt an EBJD would last a day.
