How's your water quality buddy, snails are usually the first to go belly up if anything is a miss.
There's a fine line between success and failure like there's a difference between surviving and thriving and we are all striving for a thriving success.

Could be the wrasse, but they normally go for the very small worms, feather dusters, etc.  Hermits often go after snails.  Could also be a polyclad flatworm - often only seen at night, and very hard to spot.

Are the snails you have able to right themselves if they fall on their backs? If not it’s a free lunch for hermits etc
