Please answer My poor little albino i feel so sorry for him.
10 gallons divided (5 gal), is too small for the albino cory's which grow larger than many of the other corydora's and thus need 20 gal minimum.(also appreciate cooler water than the Betta enjoy's)
Is possible the Betta attacked the cory and is why betta's are not considered community fish .(With possible exception of large aquariums.)
Regular water changes , perhaps twice weekly will be best medicine along with separating the fish.
Fish can survive with the loss of an eye for they feed primarly by smell,but I would not subject a fish I cared about to small enviornment ,with known aggressive fish such as a Betta.
