Also, I don't know what color his poop is. I am not home a whole lot because I'm a busy body so I don't ever see him go. I don't know if that's normal because I'm not home or if he's not going at all because he's constipated and I should give him an epsom salt bath. I'm home a couple hours on week days and on weekends when I'm home all day I've still never noticed him go.

API's master test kit is good. What were the exact ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels?

Albino cory reach 3" in length when kept properly and require 20g (some say 30g). They're also a schooling fish and ideally are kept in groups of 6+ I would rehome or get a bigger tank. Sorry.

So I'd say.. upgrade your tank or rehome the cory, and stabilize temps. Watch poop as you can as well.

Yes, they were. But they were with him since I bought him, and he was healthy and fine for a good 10 months with them in the tank with him. I can rehome them rather easily (my mom has a 100 gallon tank at her house) although I'd be sad to see them go.

Also, the exact testings were 0ppm Nitrite, 0ppm ammonia, and 20ppm Nitrate.

Levels are ok. Nitrates are on the tip top end of okay. I would go ahead and do a 50% water change to reduce those. They're probably high because of the cory bioload.
