So glad you found your nerite! I just found mine today making it's way into the betta tank. It originally lives in a CRS tank and I came home to it already halfway in the next one.

The tank is doing wonderfully. I got some wonderfully bright blue velvet shrimp from Soothing Shrimp to add to it.

The buces are doing really good. Have some great new growth coming in. The plant that did melt - I let float and almost all the pieces with a leaf or two now have roots coming off them. I think I will let them continue to float and should have 3 small individual plants in a month or so. I also have my very first flower coming up, can't wait to get some pictures of it when it blooms.

You can see it starting to come up in this picture -

The buces are doing wonderfully! I even had the first flower pop up and a second growing right now. Flowers are just so dang awesome, like a beautiful present every time one pops up. I'm surprised I have them and that my buces are growing so very, very well. I lost 2 of them completely from melting but the others that survived are not only surviving they are growing really well and showing great color PLUS giving me smile inducing flowers. This plant is really a joy to have and on bad days, these and my beautiful shrimp bring me much happiness.
