Torches can split, but very slowly. It does not happen quickly like an anemone. A way you can tell if it is dying is if you can see an exposed skeleton.

High phosphate shouldn't be causing the problem, it more so affects coral with more skeleton. I guess though, if they are super high, maybe that's the cause of the problem, but I honestly don't know.

The API phosphate test is no good for our hobby, it’s not precise enough for our needs. Just disregard the API test and invest in a good quality phosphate tester. Salifert and hanna are good.
