one thing i see often with my tetras is that they like to chase each other around so my guess was maybe when they were chasing each other around he might of poked his eye on one of my fake plants thats what i was thinking.

im not sure if this is normal behavior for tetras chasing each other around

Hmm...Do you have all neons or are they mixed? Their temperments could be causing it as I've never heard of neon's chasing each other usually they're docile. (I've never owned them but I have aggressive fish whom will bite the first thing that irritates them.)

im pretty sure its something to do with them chasing each other and he ran into a fake plant and poked his eye out. Im probably gonna remove him tomorrow from the tank i dont want any infections getting into my water and killing any of my fish.

I agree with you MTG....I think it was an injury due to the Neon chasing each other and it running into something or it had already lost its eye and you just didn't notice it-but still most likely due to injury not attack...

Sorry for the confusion-....it can be normal behavior for tetras to chase each other-it all part of establishing pecking order, communication....etc.....

That depends....if the Tetra is hiding and not eating....then yes, I would remove it, if it is otherwise acting and eating okay and no signs of a secondary infection at the injury site-I would leave it.....
