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.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

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.:)
