Anyone kept Bettas with Nerite Snails?

I'm thinking of getting either an Olive Nerite Snail or a Zebra Nerite Snail for my 5 gallon Betta aquarium. However, I'm concerned about the Betta attacking him, eating him, or picking on him. Has anyone kept these two together, and if so how did they behave towards each other?

I have 2 mystery snails and a betta in the same tank. They all live peacefully from what I've seen. The snails' shells don't have holes in them or anything like that. :)

I keep 1 zebra nerite per 10 gallons with betta juvies and female bettas without problems. Be sure to allow space for the snail to climb up out of the water every once and awhile.
