    So this substrate seems a little sharper than say regular aquarium gravel. Does anyone use this substrate in a planted tank and have nerite snails with any issues?

    It does look quite sharp.
    I don't think it will be a problem for snails, but it might be a problem for loaches and other creatures with barbells and the like.

    I have had a variety of snails and cory aeneus on fluorite sand and gravel. Sand is fine for both but cories and snails behaved differently in the gravel and were much more active on the sand. It didn't see to have any adverse effects on them but they definitely showed a preference.
