What type of tetras? If the tetras are small, a krib might eat them. But otherwise kribs are generally peaceful with fish they can't eat, except during spawning of course.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Don't know your tank size, but the Chinese Algae Eater (so-called) gets to 6 inches and can be very nasty. Also, they will not even look at algae, much less eat it, when they mature. You might want to consider re-homing the CAE, like back to the store in trade. This fish will cause you trouble down the road (and already seems to be). B.
