cherry shrimp in a 29 gallon

I have aprox. 15 cherry shrimp in a 29 gallon aquarium along with 11 pygmy cory's. The tank has pool filter sand on the bottom and is filtered by an AquaClear 110 filter, which I know is way over doing it, with a rigged sponge from another AC Filter over the intake. I bought my first female red shrimp (pregnant) at That Fish Place in Lancaster Pa. in July and a few weeks later she down loaded a mess of young, of the young which are quite large now I have a good 4-5 females and the same in males. I bought 1 male and 2 female adult shrimp at the local fish store for 1.10 each Saturday to go along with the others, which will help in the inbreeding.
I have a question concerning the shrimp and the cory's, will the cory's eggs/babies get eaten by the shrimp when they decide to do there thing. I was told that these two the cory and shrimp work great together and the shrimp wouldn't bother any. THANKS.

Bye the way how many shrimp would be allowable in this size tank and what filter would be good for the tank in replacement of the AC 110, I thought that an AC 50 would work, what do you think?
I'd start selling or giving the shrimp away at about a hundred or when you start seeing adults all over the place.

The cory's are more likely to eat their own eggs than the shrimp.
