One reason why snails are dying is because they are starved when no more algae to feed them.

Watched my tank till three in the morning last night out of curiosity. Turns out my supposedly safe black brittle star is taking out snails. Pretty sure he got my two purple firefish that disappeared? Anybody have any good removal tricks? If not I am going to try the bottle trap.......

Is it killing the snails or eating dead snails? What kind of snails are they?

I actually watched it take a live one last night. I have a few different types. Can't say it has taken them all but I know for sure it gutted last night's snail.

Well, if you want him out just feed the tank. I'm sure yours will come out as quickly as mine did to try to get the food floating around the tank. Just reach in with a pair of tongs or gloves and grab him. Hopefully you have a sump or something to put it in.
