    I would like a apple or mystery snail in my cory fry tank to clean up all of the extra food they don't eat but was wondering if the snail will eat the fry.

    No, they don't eat fry.

    I have mystery snails with platy fry, they don't bother them in the least.

    If a fry is being caught by a snail it probably deserves to be eaten lol.

    But there shouldn't be any issues. I keep snails in pretty much all of my fry tanks to do some cleanup of missed food. Poor water quality from rotting food is way more of a threat to fry than a snail.
