Corys and shrimp

I recently got a group of 10 corydoras habrosus. They seem to be settling in fine. Eating, digging through the sand and swimming around. But my red cherry shrimp seems to be way too interested in the new arrivals. They seem to be bothering them. One morning I thought one of the corys had died because it looked like two shrimps were eating him, but after a few seconds he shook them off and kept swimming.

Has anyone experienced this before? I'm not sure if I should be worried or not.

I have shrimp and Habrosus in the same tank with no issues. Maybe he has something on his skin and they were removing it?

If your dog thinks you are the greatest do not seek a second opinion

Maybe. I just hope it's temporarily, the corys seem annoyed
