I would not recommend any salt with the cory cat-I would QT and treat the Betta separate QT with aquarium salt 1tsp/gal along with 100% daily water changes for 10 days and make 50% daily water changes on the 10g with the cory cat and snails.
You also either need to re-home the cory cat or get more to complete the shoal-this will help with stress related problems

Cory cats can be sensitive to salts in amounts used for treatment-they can die a slow miserable death.

I thought you meant not to ever use salt. My mistake.

So basically i need to switch the snails back into the 10g and put levi in the kritter keeper? Or should i put him back in his 1g tank. Will the snails be ok with the all in one treatment if so?

I have nothing against you so i do appreciate the help though. I have had 2 cories pass away from the same thing from the looks of it. they were both white and furry on their eyes fins and tails. The last one doesn't seem to be have any issues right now but levi my betta fish is now starting to have little white spots on his head and they look alittle furry but not like what the cories had.

Let me go get my camera from downstairs and I will try to take a picture of him. Knowing levi he will probably be like hey food lady give me food.

yay for double post either way had to strike a deal with him in order for him to cooperate. Needless to say he got bloodworms out of it >.> I got 3 clearish pictures sorry if it isn't really visable though but with the cories passing like that in the same tank i just want to make sure that it isn't just the cories that is sick here.
