Now what should I do with my Neon Tetra?
 
I posted last week regarding "Scraped scales or worse?" and my little neon has healed as best he can. I don't think his dorsal fin will ever be quite right again but he swims well and eats well. He's staying in my 10G shrimp tank but he's all alone. Should I leave him there or return him to my big tank? Any thoughts? I'm afraid he'll be picked on again. Thanks.

Why not buy him some companions?:) 5 more will make 6. Even if it's not a shoal, at least, he has company.:)

Isn't a fish that's visibly weaker in some way at greater risk?

Give him a few days then before he can either join his community or get new companions.:)
