Emperor Congo tetras in community tank

I really like to get Emperor or Congo tetras for my community tank. I know it is hit and miss with tetras fin-nipping other fish, but just want to hear from your personal experiences. Did anyone had Emperor or Congo tetras fin-nipping other fish, in particular fancy guppies?

I haven't had emperors or congos, but my other tetras aren't too nippy. I think it helps when they're in a school, because the nipping will be confined to each other. What other fish do you have?

Fancy guppies (my main concern) and albino corries.
