I had 4 large snails and in the past 2 days 3 of them wound up dead and empty, as far as i know i have nothing that will kill snails, I have the following

2 false percula
1 yellow tang
1 6 line wrasse
1 regal tang
1 sabae anemone
1 large black brittle star
1 tree coral
2 zenia
1 large colony of star polyps
1 medium size colony of hammers
some normal bristle worms and a large feather duster.
50 lbs of live rock

is there something that kills snails that may be able to hide that i dont know i have?? just weird they have all vanished from there shells in just 2 days after being in there so long..

dont know how old they were they were fairly decent size when i got them but its just strange for them all to die at the same time i bought 4 at one time and 3 died between yesterday and today i have had them for about 2 months i dont know what there lifespan is but surely they all didnt die from old age at the same time...
