Exclamation New Betta! and tank mates HELP

Okay so i got a new Betta today! But also a couple of golden tetra they don't seem to bother each other but they Betta isn't very active i even put a mirror in the tank and he didn't even flare he just ignored it and swam off he is a pretty young i'm judging by his size which is pretty small and is a blue Crown tail with red fins and white tips even the tetra i got aren't active at all i have about 8 of them in the tank could any one help? By the way it's a twenty gallon tank im saving up for more plants because i think that might be part of the well as there not being enough tetra lots of help would be appreciated!

Did you put all the tetras in at the same time ? Is the entire tank new ?

And it's most likely the betta is not fond of his tank-mates. Bettas tend to do quite better off alone, maybe with a snail or two. If he really doesn't get better, I would say get him his own tank, sadly.
