You should get some more cories to keep yours company one he recovers. Other than that, I suggest neon tetras. They are beautiful, mid level schooling fish. Get at least 5!

If the cory is behaving like that, you can keep it by itself just fine. This sounds like a female cory to me.

Sweeda made a good suggestion with neons. If you don't like them, try hengeli rasboras or celestial pearl danios.

For your future reference, true fungal infections are absolutely rare. It takes untreated injuries for the spores to start establishing themselves and spread around the fish. Maroxy is your best course of treatment for this. Most "fungal infections" are simply caused by columnaris, a gram-negative bacteria. Treatments include kanamycin/kanaplex, a combination of Maracyn (erythromycin) and Maracyn 2 (minocycline), Maracyn Plus and Jungle Fungus Clear.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
