Scolymia detaching- help!

Iíve had this scoly for a couple years now. Recently itís been inflating fine, tentacles out and feeding well. Now it has gone saggy lol and has detached from the skeleton a bit! Itís literally like a flap. #PANIC

I was thinking of dipping it later and checking the parameters. These were the results of a few days ago:

Alk 12
Cal 455
Mag 1200
Nitrate 8
Phos
Ph 8.2
1.022

Since then itís had a water change and I put in two drops of iodine.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

My opinion is ALK is bit high and Sg is bit low. I recommend ALK is around 8 and sg is 1.025.

That happened to my scoly too. I corrected the water params then put superglue on the peeling part and managed to save it. It's only 1/4 the size now but still alive.
