do a search on the site there are tons of posts on the.. I have only seen a astrea eat cyno once in a while. Most have yet to find any critters that will eat it. So i do not think that the snails ate it. I got it in my fowlr now, the water filters are nto working 100% and Im getting PO4 in the tank.. In the am the cyno is gone and it comes during the day with the lights on and goes away after lights out.
check water for PO4..

Try and use RO/DI water only for topoffs and waterchanges (Tap will bring P04).
Increased water flow to the area (this works well for me).
Siphon it out when doing waterchanges.
Cut back on the lighting if you wish.
Cut back on feeding (what are you using to feed your fish? Food could bring P04 to the tank).
