Can nerite snails live in freshwater?

I was wondering because I have heard them mentioned as good algae eater, but I thought they were only saltwater . Will they survive in freshwater?

They'll be fine in FW and while they may spawn, the eggs won't hatch unless moved to BW or SW.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Is that true of most SW snails, or just nerite?
