Corydoras and Planaria

I have a 10 gallon planted Fire Red Shrimp tank. I would like to buy about 5 Corydoras in order to eat some of the unwated critters in invert tanks, specifically planaria.

Would Corydoras do a good job of consuming planaria? I only feed the shrimp once or twice a week so I don't see any sign so far but wanted to also add some activity to the tank.

Secondly, what has your experience been like in terms of Corydoras and shrimp?

Is it say to safe that they are generally shrimp safe and that they would probably just accidentally grab a shrimplet here and there?

I like both dwarf and the medium sized Corydoras (Pandas, etc). Would it matter much which I get?
