Puffers in general don't do amazingly well with other fish, so I would say no to tetras with it. The only tank mate I've seen for a red eye puffer is more red eye puffers. Considering your tanks only a 20 gallon I would only keep the puffer on its own.

Agreed with Ben. The only time I've seen a red eye with another fish, was with a red eye of a different sex. Even then it didn't look to be working out well since the female looked very stressed.

It might not attack or disturb your other fishes but sooner or later it'll show you a different story. So as said above, better to have it alone or with it's prefered tankmates.

Best of luck!
