Dead Turbo Snails

I bought 5 Turbo snails yesterday afternoon at my LFS. I awoke this morning to find 3 of them completely gone from their shells. Any idea what could have happened to them? My tank is lightly stocked as I am just getting it started. My parameters are:
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 20
PH 7.8
Thanks for any help, I'm thinking the culprit could be a horseshoe crab.

The tank is 75 gallons, I realize the nitrate level is high, It always seems to remain at that level, I tried numerous water changes but nitrates remain the same, any suggestions for this? Thanks

reduce feelings, more - larger water changes and return or rehome the horseshoe crab. one of those animals they should be left in the ocean.

inverts require clean water. they are more sensitive then fish in the area of water parameters.

You need a much larger tank for that horseshoe crab.
