I wasn't sure what to say since your parameters seemed perfectly fine. However, after reading this, this could be the problem. Fen/flubendazole is sometimes quite harmful to pest snails. It's really hit or miss. So in your case the effect seems to be killing them off.

Do a test, remove some MTS from your tank and just place them in a cup of tap and see how they do.
