Depends on what tetras you want. A 10 gallons tank can simply fit 20 neons or 15 cardinal tetras. Tetras really do not add too much to the bioload hence the stocking is far different from most fish.
I'm debating on simply removing him and taking him to an LFS. I don't want to overstock my 10g. I've heard that tetras don't necessarily follow the 1"fish per gallon of water rule, but have never kept them.
