The shrimp may eat guppy fry or nip fins, and the guppies will most likely eat any baby shrimp. But if you have some hiding places for the shrimp and some plants for the guppies to rest in so they don't have to rest on the bottom all the time it should be ok.

I’ve been looking in to getting some shrimp for my community tank that has mainly guppies in it.

^You should, However I doubt the shrimp will attack the guppies... or the fry.... But your right the guppies will definitely try to chomp on some baby shrimp.
I'm just going by what I've read when I goggled it just befor this was posted. I read a few reports of it happening...

Myself I feel the guppies are far more of the threat to the shrimp then the shrimp would be to the guppies.
