Question Should I?

Well i bought a betta fish and put him in a 20 gallon tank with 3 tetras and they totally lost it the were nipping at him so i moved them to the 10 gallon i originally setup for him and they are hiding all the time and are barely swimming.

Should i put them back in the 20 gallon and put the betta in the 10 gallon but the problem is i can get the tank temp over 76

You need to but more tetras. Three is to low of a number. The more you have, the least chance of fin nipping. 6+ is recommended.

tetras are active, they need to be in the 20 gallon, with at least 3 more to make them a school. Your betta can go in the 10 gallon. To heat it, if you don't have a heater, I advise you go get one :)
