I know that snails are commonly kept in grow out tanks, not sure about corys. I am not a breeder, but I have picked up a thing or two from reading spawn logs.

I use a mystery snail in my grow out tank. I've never tried corys, I'd be afraid they might eat the little ones resting on the bottom.

I am using snails in my current spawn. They are doing a wonderful job.
Im pretty sure someone on here tried corys and they ate some fry.. I think..
The only bad things about snails is they poop ALOT

I have two mystery snails in my 3 week old spawn. They are messing and poop a lot but snail poo is better than uneaten food. Definitely don't do Cory cats, someones entire spawn was ate on here.

Corys will def. eat the fry! Someone put one in with their fry and it probably ate 10-20 of them within a couple of days.
Small sized snails are alright. They will eat the dead fry, but they won't go after any living ones.

mystery snails are great for spawning and grow out tanks :)

I really like common pond snails and ramshorn. They create a lot of waste but there is not too much bio load
