Golden Apple Snail tankmate with Zebra Nerite Snail?

Thinking of getting a zebra nerite snail, any reason why they can't co-exist with apple snails?

I have mine together in freshwater and they get along just fine. I don't believe any apples can be in salt at all so if you were planning on breeding your nerites they do need to either be in brackish or saltwater.

The combo is fine. Apple snails will rarely ever eat the algae that nerites relish so there is really no competition issues between them.

I'm ready for the pressure.
