Hi, congrats on the fry!
How big is the tank and what else is in there?
My guess is he'll get eaten before long. If you want to try to raise him you'll have to get him out of there ASAP.
It's not totally unusual for the tetras to have bred, just unusual that one of the eggs made it long enough to hatch and that he hasn't been eaten yet.
What it does mean is that you're providing them with good water quality, so keep up the good work!

It's a 20 gallon with only the 5 older neons in it. He was out and about a little yesterday after the water change but one of the bigger ones chased him back into hiding. He came out again, ate a few flakes then went into hiding again. I hope there is enough cover for him to grow but the bigger ones were swimming around the area he was in. *fingers crossed*
