I Woke Up This Morning And One Of My Tetras Have No Eye =S

i woke up this morning well right now i went to my aquarium to feed my fish. As i was feeding my fish i noticed a tetra in the back not eating, it got me curious so i looked to the back were he was sitting i mean swimming lol and i looked at his eye and it was red as it was swimming closer to me i noticed he had no eye. I have no idea how this happened maybe someone has a suggestion or even a explanation ?

Need some more info....

Tank size, how much and how often are the water changes, temp, additives used, filter, live plants, stocking information, type of decoration, how long has the tank been running, how long have you had the Tetra, has the Tetra been sick and/or treated in the last 2 weeks, can you post a pic....

Also, is the tank cycled and do you have any water pram numbers for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH and what type of test products used....

Do you have a filter and what is the tank stocked with...species and numbers to rule out if it was caused by a tank mate and type of additives used....

Hard to tell by the pic...but it almost looks like an old injury...can you tell if the eye socket looks clean or any tissue hanging out....other eye looks normal-no clamped fins...just hiding more and not eating...

To start I would get the Tetra QT'd and start clean like temp dechlorinated water treatment-I am sure you already know this-but Tetras can be really sensitive to medications and salt...

Nice job on your tank by the way...very pretty....

Does your tetra live with a betta? Sometimes betta's will beat up their tankmates a bit if they feel their territory is being invaded.

Hmm..Could it be from one of the plants then? I'm not sure how a fish could have lost their eye besides an attack.
