I would recommend more albino cories as they like to be in large groups (6 or more) but I don't know if a 10 gallon tank is enough for them. Maybe someone else can comment on that.

I don't think a 10 is large enough for a school of corys.

I would take the corys back they need about a 20 gallon tank and they need to be in a group of around 6. You'll probably have too much agression with the guppies you should take one of the males back and get two females. If you really want to keep the other male you will want to add two females per male. Then maybe get something like neon tetras or something.

So here's my idea of a stocking list for a 10 gallon....
-1 male guppy
-2 female guppys
-5 or 6 neon tetras

then maybe a snail or some shrimp and some live plants.

+1 for E_Watson and Jaysee.

Albino corydoras, Corydoras aenus can grow up to 3 inches long and rather deep-bodies, therefore, they are generally not suitable for a 10 gallon tank, which has a minimal footprint and does not provide proper space for these energetic catfish to forage. You may need to take them back, because they will outgrow the tank.

If you really want any corys, you could always have pygmy corydoras, Corydoras hastatus or something like that. They only get to a maximum of 1.5 inches long and are more suitable.
