Will they eat my cories?

I have a community tank ( 75 gallons ) with juvenile cichlids; firemouth, angels, krib, and buffalo head. I also have skunk and sterbai cories. Do you think when the cichlids mature they will eat them? They get alone fine now... I also have neon tetras, which I'm sure they won't last, but I want my cories to stay!

I have a couple of 4" firemouths and they don't bother my smaller fish. IMO it should be fine.

They wont eat them, but if you have breeding cichlids of a certain size/aggression and the cories get into their breeding zone, they may be killed or beaten up badly.

Edit: yes, the neons will definately go eventually, firemouth and Angels will snack on them.
