Help to reboost the tank

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum !
Hope I am typing in a correct message box and can get your advise.

I have a 120 liter Juwel Tank for around 1,5 year. I am also based in UAE.

Firstly, everything was operating great for a year or so. It appeared later that skimmer had some issues and was not working properly and then a disaster came. Slowly, all corals died, I was left with one shrimp, one snail and one clown fish. To be honest there was a time when I stopped taking care of aquarium... but now I want to start again.

The main problem now at my tank:

- Salinity is 1,030 ! I can not drop it down, I do a 10% water change every week with a new salinity as 1,020 and it is still not going down, what should I do?

- There are some "insects" that appeared to be on the rocks and over the tank. They are very small, hardly can be seen but they are moving... one type has a star shape, some other are like a small snails. How do I get rid of them?

- Bubble algae... should I get a crab for cleaning crew ? Some of them are under the rock and I can not remove it physically. Should I may be just change all my old rocks to the new ones ? How to do it correctly ?

- Another type of algae.. growing as a tree ! what to do with it ?

My other parameters are ok.. only ph needs to be increased. How to increase it ? ( I measured it by the special kit )
Ammonia, nitrate is good.
