Hey ANB! As Seahorse said, it's very common for Nerites to escape from the water, and their tanks.
They're 'tidal' snails, and my understanding is that they can actually live outside of the water, provided they're in a moist environment.
From what I've read, 79 is at the high end of their comfort range in temperature - so you may want to turn the heater back a bit if you can.
I *think* the ideal for them is around 71-79, so 82 is a bit warm. . . your Betta would be okay with a lower temp, too. Just be sure you dial it back slowly.
I believe your pH is within their range, which is somewhere around 6.5-8, if I'm remembering correctly.
Some say that they won't try to 'escape' if they're happy in a tank, but I'm not sure this is true. . .
