Cory Size Discrepancy, Problem??

I just rescued a large emerald cory (I believe), he is 3-4 inches and at least 7 years old, trouble is I have to keep him in my 10 gallon tank while my 55 is being cycled. He is currently living with a few neons, rasboras, and two very small corys (about an inch). The first feeding went ok, everyone was eating, but I'm worried about the size of this guy. Does anyone have experience with keeping large corys and small ones together? Just want to make sure my little julii and albino will be okay.

Photo of the albino and emerald together, the julii is even smaller (yet fatter) than the albino

Corys are fine, they never show aggression to other fish whether their own species, related species or any other fish.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I figured as much, just didn't want him to accidentally hurt one of the little guys while feeding. Thanks!
