If its the flesh, both mouth and tentables, that popped off the skeleton then I would start by checking your alkalinity, calcium, salinity, and even temperatures. If any are flucuating this can happen. If all that had been spot on for the past week, then move on to no3 and po4, magnesium, pH... probably not a lighting issue.

Also, can you get one without blue lights on at all? Makes it hard to tell when not sure where we should be looking.

Is your flow turned off for the picture? Look pretty limp in general, could be needing more flow and in tuen, food. Or if you have too much flow normally blowing in that exact spot on the colony the head could have been effected and all others are fine...

Pretty much need more details lol

Agree with SaltyWalter here. And no you can't just drag the fleshy part. Once the euphyllia separates from the skeleton its a goner. Focus on saving the othe heads at this point.

The rest looks pretty healthy in that pic. I would keep an eye on the rest of them. Sometimes something accidentally damages a head too, like a shrimp or crab stealing food. Or a lack of light geting to that head under the others. If no others show signs of deterioration then just let it do its thing.

If the one that looks bad shows ANY sign of infection (a brown jelly like substance on the skeleton) then remove it and cut that dead part back as far as you can and check others.
