'nother shark bought the farm

so.. My one bala shark died thursday night from what looked to be some kind of cottony fungal infection. old news. Anyway yesterday my fire department had a big day at a parade, and i was looking at the fish before I left yesterday morning. The gouramis and tetras are still doing great, and the remaining bala was docile, but not really anything out of the ordinary. I assumed it was normal because he was a little apprehensive about the gouramis.

anyway he was swimming around and even eating.. but last night when I got home he was floating upside down just off the gravel at the bottom :( and this is after the melafix was added (the day before). this morning I got up for a fire call and the little dude was dead

my question is, even though the other fish all look fine should i finish out the 7 days of melafix anyway?

RIP Pierce
