Betta ate neon's eye

Okay, I just do not EVEN know what do do here. My male betta (whom we just put in yesterday) has apparently eaten the left eye of one of the 5 neons that are in the 10 gallon tank with him. This happened at feeding time, about 10 minutes ago, when food pellets were sinking and the fish were doing that darting around eating thing, and we believe that perhaps it was not necessarily aggressive. We think this because he is not at all being aggressive toward Mr. One Eye or any of the other neons and is, in fact, in among them without any aggression. (My husband just walked in and said, "I think it was just a food mistake.")

My question is what to do about One Eye. Should we humanely euthanize him, or see if he recovers? (And, obviously, we should watch the betta's behavior to see if he continues aggressive or not).

I wouldn't euthanize him. He will still live however he wll have only one eye through his lifetime. Treat with Melafix in the meantime.:)
