I've never had any issues with my Bettas and Nerite, all mine do is flare at them.
I suspect its because a lot of species of snail are both genders. :P

Yes, I heard that nerites need two different genders. Are mystery snails asexual? I also heard that bett as attack mystery snails eye stalks.

Nope. I only have them come up to the tank's rim when they are laying eggs. Now the nerites and rabbits snails are Houdinis...

I have my zebra and tiger nerites in a heavily planted tank and they have been just fine. They did good with the algae and plant matter but when the tank is very clean, they will also eat algae wafers and even lettuce that I give them.
