Ram Cichlid Breeding Question

If I have a mating pair of Rams with a small school of emerald corys and a school of tetras will either species bother the Ram's eggs/fry?

The cories may eat the eggs the tetras will probably eat both eggs and small frys. Combine that with the fact that rams are terrible parents to begin with.

That is literally the worst combo of fish for spawning rams haha. On top of losing eggs.. the parents will most likely get stressed constantly having to defend the nest.
