Compatibility with glowlights?

Hi :) I am new here but i just wanted to ask a quick question.

I just recently (two weeks ago) bought a betta fish and put it in a 2.5 gallon tank with a filter, heater and live plants. However, I also have a 20 gallon tank with 9 glowlights tetras.

I was wondering if it would be okay to insert the betta into the bigger tank. Would it be happier? Will the glowlights get stressed? How about the beta? also, how would i feed the betta its food without the other fish eating it.

I may be wrong but the process will be stressfull for all involved fish. the only way to see if the two species get along would be to try it, resign yourself to the worst because you never know. The bigger tank will most likely do better for him then the 2.5 gallon, which is a bit puny. I would feed the tetras in a seperate location than the betta( other side of tank for example).
