Okay, chiming in now :)
Skirt tetras are very hardy fish. In fact, I'm using them to cycle my tank as I type! The only problem is, you only have 1 in there, which is EXTREMELY stressful for her. Like, death-by-stress stressful. I know that's gonna kill you, but it's true. Skirt tetras are shoaling fish and need to be kept in groups of 6. I only have 3 right now because I'm cycling but I'm going to be getting three more soon.
So... what to do with that is completely up to you. You could leave her and see what happens. Is she nippy at all? Chasing the other fish or getting territorial? Normally they get nippy if they're in small groups. 2/3 of mine are nippy, and one is being particularly annoying right now. She has claimed half of the tank for herself!! :/ If she's not being nippy, you might be fine. Good luck!
