    hm, i'm no expert, but maybe quarantine your snails, do a water change for your fish, a good tank scrub and monitor everything closely. I'm not quite sure what to do about your snails though, but I'm sure it wont be long before someone much more knowledgeable than me when it comes to these things comes along to help :)

    what kind of worm? are they anchoured to the snails and fishes?would it be possible to post a picture??If it is anchoured to fish's body then it might be anchour worm,in that case you have to remove the worm manually by using tweezers and application of neosporin cream on the spot,also by adding salt to the water will kill the spores it might have released.

    Could the worms possibly be Planarians or flatworms? Thats the only thing I can think of right now. It could very likely be something else than flatworms because you said your worms are eating your snail clutches but the flatworms are supposed to be harmless. If they do turn out to be flatworms don't over feed and keep your gravel clean and they should go away.
