A couple time a week the Swordtails are given frozen brine shrimp instead of flakes. Do Cory's eat the shrimp or should they get pellet food when giving the Swordtails shrimp? The Cory's get pellets daily.

Agreed. Cories are carnivorous and appreciate meatier foods.

A food that my cories also liked were chopped up shrimp.

The cories love brine shrimp as long as the swordtails allow any to get to the bottom of the tank. The cories do fine with any fish flakes that manage to make it to the bottom. You don't need special food for cory cats. They do fine on regular tropical fish flakes. They like any freeze dried blood worms that make it to the bottom too.
