Would my tetras nip the fins of killifish?

Hey guys, I have a school of tetras and I want to get some killifish. Would my white skirt tetras nip at the killifish's fins?

White Skirts are notorious nippers in my experience.

Kili's, IMO usually do best in their own tank.

I have my clowns in with cherry barbs, gold barbs, flame and red eyed tetras and nobody is aggressive whatsoever. Although I have found flames to be aggressive towards each other (LOL) however I have no experience with white skirts
