Advice on Tetra w/ missing eye

I have a jewel tetra who has mysteriously lost an eye while I was at work. He seems to be in pretty bad shape. Very pale, not swimming ( I wouldn't either if I just lost an eye.) I have him in a breeder net and have squirted a little AquaSafe (slime coating stuff) around him. Should I move him to a tank by himself and treat with some antibiotics? My Q tank is in use, so I don't have another one cycled. Or should I leave him in the breeder net and treat the whole tank with Melafix? Other suggestions?
