Snails Dying

Keep buying snails, turbos, astreas, and nassarius... The turbos and nassarius snails keep dying - in both my fuge and my DT. The astreas are fine. I have two small hermits and an emerald in the DT, but nothing in the fuge except some chaeto, so that rules out crabs as the sole source of their demise. I had busted one crab killing a bumble bee snail, moved home to the fuge, but it was too late. So, any ideas?
Thanks

It sounds like your hermits are looking for larger homes to live in. Get some empty shells and they will stop taking out your snails.

What are your parameters? I doubt that this would be the issue since other inverts are doing ok, but better safe than sorry.

I have done that, I just don't get how they don't even survive in the fuge...
