Hey, I've been away for a week... When I returned I noticed that my goniopora got ill.
It completely disappeared! Any ideas why?
Especially that Kh, Mg, Ca, Ph, nitrate are ok!

It's goniopora, that's why. It is notorious for thriving and then dying. Very hard coral to keep alive long term.

...but it's been in the tank for the five years! Is it possible that it just suddenly "decided" to die?

It could be. That's quite a success with this coral. Did you feed it?
