Can a fish survive with one eye I have this green terror which looked like he could of been getting picked on so I moved him just noticed?

That was a bad idea as he got his eye ripped out in the new tank so switched him back to his old tank and wondering if he has a chance of living

    If your tank is cycled and clean, it can heal and he will be ok, though he might not win in a fight with other aggressive fish. I had a Kribensis cichlid lose an eye a while back, he was fine once it healed over.
