I have this one neon t that keeps going up and down the glass while all the others are schooling happily and sometimes not schooling because they feel so secure, what is the loner tetra doing? Here's some photos

It may be of boredom or the reflection. Typically it is boredom.

Oh ok, it's weird how he's just the weirdest out of the 14, he doesn't have ich, bloat, pop eye or anything, I'll try reducing light to the side of the tank

Hmm maybe take out all of the decorations and do live plants with some driftwood instead?
Mmmmm sounds good, there is one driftwood plant in there but it's at the back where they all like to hide

Maybe move the driftwood in the front and live plants on the back and sides.

In my experience when a schooling fish singles itself out or is pushed out by the others it's because something is wrong with it.
What? I can't say cause the pics aren't very clear.
Every single time I've had a schooling fish single itself out or any fish period, it has died shortly after or whatever illness/disease they have becomes apparent.
I'd keep a close eye on it and your other fish.

He's on and off, schools with them then does his own thing, I've closed my curtain so that he can't see his reflection and he hasn't done it in about 2 hours now

Good news! Hopefully he's just a little bit different and there's nothing actually wrong with him.
