They like cooler water so perhaps 76 is too warm for them?

do
You said there's algae in the tank, are you sure it's not dinoflagellates? Because Dinos can definitely kill off your snails.
dont thinks dinoflagellates havent had that since cycled about 8 months ago i get alot of green algae on the glass
