Cory attacked!

So this morning I saw one of my Juli cories on the bottom sideways, and yeah i thought he had died. he was acting strange before. So i fish him out and he is still alive! It looks like he was attacked by another fish, he is missing one eye and has what looks to be a bite on his stomach. He is alive but i am not sure he can hold on. I have him in a small jar since my QT is full of fish and i am not sure if they or healthy, or if he might be sick. If he gets better i will float him in the water to keep warm.

I am thinking one of my upside down cat fish got him in the night since he was acting lethargic. i am thinking i need to re-home the upside downs (pet store mistake).

i just hope the cory makes it. Not sure if there is anything I can do to help his recovery.
