The snail you have is indeed nerite. Only very few can breed in FW conditions but the resulting babies need phytoplanktons in order to survive, which unfortunately is almost non-existent in tank setups. All nerites are sexual so there's no way they can produce fertile eggs without a mate and even proper water conditions.
