Are African Clawed Frogs compatible with Chili Rasbora and Pygmy cories in a 20 gallon aquarium?

Wasn't sure due to the corys and the frog being in the same area of the tank (though the cories are more bottom-middle rather than just bottom), and with the ACF having claws I didn't know if it could harm either the rasbora or the corys.

    ACFs are predators, they'd thank you for putting them in a tank with so many tasty morsels!

    These are frogs that get tennis-ball-sized plus legs, they are not animals for community set ups! A single ACF needs a 20g just for itself. They're messy too!

    African Dwarf Frogs (which don't come in albino and stay small) are also best in species tanks as they are easily outcompeted to food and may chomp on to passing fish mistaking them for lunch due to poor eyesight.

    The Claws are not the problem, The problem is African Clawed frogs get 5 inches long and the Rasbora will just fir right down the hatch. I doubt they would eat Corys as a first choice, but Clawed ?frogs don't even know what theey are eating half the time as they eat by smeel and touch, not sight. A 5 inch Clawed. frog could possibly eat a very small Cory. If it fits, its food for them.
