Why do my snails keep dying? (while my corals/fish do fine)

It's really odd. My turbo snails keep dying, but everything else in my tank is floroushing. I have a bunch of soft corals, two maroon clowns, a blue tang, watchman goby, and a couple blennys. Not to mention about 20 hermits. Tank conditions good, water temp around 80-82, salt 1.024. It's just odd that everything does great but snails, which are supposed to be the heartiest (or so i thought). Any idea guys? or Thoughts even?

high nitrates can affext most inverts while not having a huge affect on fish, what are your amonia nitrite and nitrate readings? Also turbos can fall off of thing and cannot right themselves, do you pick up after your snails ?

my nitrates are fine(and i mean hey , my corals and anemoes are doing fine so it would suprise me that the snails are more sensitive), and yeah perhaps thats's what killed the last one. Those ****ed things. I don't get it, how have they survived evolutionary if they can't even right themselves? And i mean ****, if it can't right itself, you think it'd be more carefull . So yeah, i guess i need to start righting them.
