Nerites don't get very big, maybe twice the size of an assassin snail. I don't know whether they are safe together but I would doubt it , maybe someone actually knows?? I wld not risk it!
Nerites can be very pretty and make a good job of clearing algae from surfaces (if you peer closely at the glass you can actually see like tooth marks!) but they do tend to lay eggs which are very hard to dislodge - you can end up with your bogwood looking like it's been sprinkled with sesame seeds. Mine always seemed to lay more eggs when disturbed e.g. moved into new tank.
