No, and you shouldn't keep gold fish in a ten gallon tank or with tetras either. They are cold water fish, both a betta and tetras need warm water.

Gold fish grow large and are messy. You will need to upgrade your tank.

+1 on both counts.

Any chance you can get a hold of a nice 55 gallon for the goldies?
