What is your nitrate reading? Elevated nitrate can cause snail loss, especially turbo snails. Worst stink in my first tank was when a turbo died. And it left a black stain where it died. Gross.
Ick treatment in the DT may have killed your BB causing elevated ammonia etc. was that 0 test done a few days after the treatment? Or before?
