I wouldn't say its your carb, cuz if u have enough food for them, they shouldn't bother your snails, since they r not hermits.
your clown might just stress and didn't get use to the tank.

provide your water test result might help us figure out the problem.

What were your water test numbers? Just saying ok doesn't tell us too much.

What size tank is it? What other fish/inverts are in there? What kind of crab did you add?

"40 gallon saltwater: 2 hang on back filters one atttached to cheap skimmer, live sand and about 20 pounds of live rock, 3 yellow tail damsels"

I agree, post some numbers. Looking at the above, have you cycled your tank?
