cories and carpet plants?

Ive heard that cories will dig up the carpet plants. Is there any way to have both cories amd carpet plants together?

I've never had problems once the carpet plants became well rooted.

I as well haven't had problems. I have a dwarf sag carpet. The cories have never dug anything up in fact my gbrs have affected it more than the cories ever did

Is it somehow possible to plant a carpet with cories in there? Maybe plant a piece on a sie and use a divider so the fish cant get to it-- then the roots will be established and it can self propagate? (I dont really know what im talking about)
