Hmm..time to break out the test kits. Fish and other inverts are fine. Only other change was I had a tiny piece of cuttlebone in the tank until my crab cuisine arrived. When I saw the second snail was dead, I removed it.Just thought it was odd since I have had the nerites long before the cpo or these fish{endlers, wild guppy}
Thanks for your replies.

Ok guys,I am going with my first instinct on this. Maybe you have mostly had the tough zebra stripe type nerites. I agree, they are a tough snail. But these are tiny horned snails. Their shells are not near as thick. I just saw her trying to work on one down on a rock. She gets over the top of it, and pulls at the foot.:icon_twis

I have had CPOs with nerites to include the small horned and olive nerites and they left them alone.
I even keep nerites with my assassin snails and the assassins don't bother them either. Maybe they taste bad?
