Albino Cory cats Eyes are ripped out.
This morning I woke up and looked in my tank, and I noticed one of my albino cory cats eyes were extremely big and red. They don't look healthy at all. all the other fish look fine. the only thing I have changed in the tank was I got a black knife fish last night, and I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it or not, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks again. (I tried to upload a pic (my fist time) so I'm not sure if the pic will work or not).

EDIT: Ok the picture didn't upload right so I uploaded it on my putfile accout it can be found here. ....
It looks almost like his eyes were ripped out. another cory in my tank has one eye that is not red but it looks ripped out as well.. Someone help I have no idea whats going on!!!

I think all finngers would point to the BKF, it's a aggresive fish. You really have a choice that or the Corys. :?

the weird thing is at the pet store it was in a 10 gallon tank with a bunch of platies and corys and they said they have never had a problem and it was a peaceful fish. I have a 29G tank that is much less crowded. Well if I gota pick the corys or the BKF the BKF has gotta go thanks for the help.
