I would find out where that ammonia is coming from and do a PWC in order to bring your parameters to the "good/ stable" state.

no supplements until recently. With the loss of the last group, I started adding " reef builder" to raise carb alk given the 2.5 alk reading. I had not previously added anything.

Some one correct me if I am wrong. Is it possible that your PWCs are too far apart and the critters are not getting the proper amount of iodine in the water to promote proper molting? Have you seen any of them molt?
I found this from drs:

It doesn't tell much about the chemicals in it.

Check all plumbing, fittings, and pumps for signs of rust.

Can you update "my info" with your tank size/equipment/critters, so we might be able to help you easier?

Nice setup! About how long do they live? If you had a mantis, those snails would be toast...

I do agree with the more frequent PWC`s as then you would have plenty of iodine in your tank for molting. The longer you go without PWC`s means the longer before trace elements are replenished. IME
