they do have the little thingy in front of them, but they won't have it out all the time.
maybe my current in the refugium is too strong?

Those are DEFINITELY not nassarius snails. Nassarius stay in the sand all day until food is available. *Sometimes* they go on rocks and other things on hunt of food when they are just about starving. If that's the picture of the snail that ate your hermits.. then those are most certainly not nassas lol.

Can you get a pic of one of them so I can see the "foot"? If they have a covering, they maybe a type of whelk. If not, they may be nassis.

Yeap, that would be the only reason. Snails are too slow...can only eat what cant move.

So if the shell doesn't cover all the foot they are naassarius snails?
