I wouldn't worry if the others are ok. Sometimes one head just dies.

I guess,was just wondering.

Was reading about iodine, but if anything go wrong means I will lose all my torch, I guess 3 heads is better than nothing.
I will just keep an eye in the next few days to see if the 3 be fine.
Thank u

Having the same problem with my torch. It has 5 heads and 2 new ones on the way. It only had 2 heads when I got it too, so it's been doing very well. One head just started shriveling up a couple days ago and this morning it was completely gone. That is a hermit crab on the dead head now. Hoping the rest will survive. Not sure what caused this.
