Do you have an entire spawn or just a handful?
If you have an entire spawn that you need to do water changes almost daily it may become a PITA.

Are the nerites the one's I sent you? I don't know if it would make a difference, but if they are they aren't nerites, they are ivory apple snails. I think it should be fine putting a small amount of fry like that in it though. Just watch the parameters and water changes as normal.

The fry will be fine, I raise all my fry in planted tanks :) The plants help filter the water so you don't need to be quite as crazy about water changes as you would without the plants.
