Nerite snails are certainly bigger than the regular assassin snail but I still would not recommend getting them. Assassin snails are meant to kill other snails so I would not be surprised if it took down your nerite snail when it cleans out all the other pond/ramshorns.

Hitchhiking snails aren't that bad, I don't do anything about them and the population is usually under control in my tanks. :)

But if you do want them gone, killing them yourselves is the only option. You could lure them with a piece of zucchini, by putting it in a net, and wait for lots of snails to much on it. Just pull the net out and dumb the snails.

Or just squish them if your finger, your choice! Pulling them out one by one sounds like hard work.

No, not unless they're native to your area. Released pet snails wreak havoc on the environment.
Same with some plants, if they're not native they cannot be released to the wild, who knows that nature havoc could happen.

Just throw them into the garbage and don't look back. You could remove the Nerite but then how would you remove the assassin snail?
