Hi! I have a bunch of colonies of torch corals but some of them are loosing their heads, all my parameters are ok, salinity, Amm, nitritos, nitratos and ph I can not test the other parameters. When the polyps separate from their skeleton they survive for 3 more days over the sand bed, I guess is not an infection, any clue? Thanks.

do you mean the entire head is coming out? or just single strands? if its the whole head its probably polyp bailout in which case something is wrong

There is not any infection the whole polyp separate from its skeleton and the polyp survive 3 more days over the sand bed. What could be wrong

you need to test for alk and CA...
These are critical prameters for keeping coral healthy
I would do a water change too.
