Will my Cory catfish eat my baby swordtail fry?

My swordtail just had some fry a few days ago. Due to lack of tank space I had to put them in with my corys, just wondering if anyone had experience with the two being together.

I've never seen a Cory eat any fry (or baby shrimp for that matter)

I kept Corydoras with dozens of species of fry over the years, never witnessed
them bothering any...

corys are about the best fish to have in with fry. they keep the tank clean and won't bother the fry.

agreed with all the above but in rare cases corys can get a taste for shrimp and eat a lot of them
