I would suggest keeping an eye on the others for at least a few weeks, and if you see signs of that in any of the others, let me know and I'll suggest a med for you. The trick is to catch it early enough to help them, since the meds need to be ingested with food to do much good, they need to still be feeling good enough to be eating well.
Sorry to hear about your losses, I hope your other fish do well.
Thanks bettababy, I will be watching them fairly closely. All the other danios (the one that I took pics of that was thin died) have pretty fat little bellies.
