I highly doubt anyone has, though it would be cool! Nerite snails are nearly impossible to breed in captivity. They require brackish I believe, and it will not hatch in salt or fresh.

There is a section on breeding nerites in this article

It's not just a question of salinity but feeding the larvae.
Thats really cool!
I dont have the time to do that but that would be a nice future experiment
