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.

Thanks. I went ahead and got one and the only thing picking on him is a chinese algae eater. Theyre kinda goin back and forth at each other.

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.
