So I have a 55 with 1 male Swordtail, 9 cardinals, 9 Cory's and 10 orange von rio tetras.

I was told by everyone they are peaceful, which they are, but they are a little more active compared to cardinals.

I do see that every now and then they'll make short dash at a cardinal, seems like just playing and no nipping ever happens. Not sure if this is something I should be okay with or if it's a red flag. I do dislike seeing aggression in the tank and don't want them to bully my cardinals too much.

I have Cardinals and Von Rios also. All of my fish chase away others once in awhile. I have never had any bitten fins. I think you are ok.
