Its to late now, but I personally would of put him in a 5 gallon bucket with a pretty high aquarium salt concentration and let him have full bath in it *Up to 45 minutes.* to treat all his wounds etc. then feed him sparsely. and when you accimlated him back into the old tank. feed all the other barbs so he is not seen as food or a target. Anyways. I don't think the 10 gallon is going to help him much, the neons should be in a school and since they are not. chances are they are nippy and will just pick on him too. and his retaliation could potentially kill your sisters neons.

Best of luck to whatever you do. when you get him back I strongly reccomend trying to give him a salt bath, feeding the other barbs and then putting him back in while they are eating so he isn't a target.

good luck!
