Kanaplex treatment on Powder Brwon

My Powder Brown was bullied and injured by a Orange Spine tang in the holding tank result in bacteria infection. I have since move the fish to a hospital tank for Kanaplex treatment and it has been 5 days and the fish is looking great. I also gave the orange spine tang away. My question is base on the photos should I continue the treatment for few more days or can I return the fish to the holding facility tomorrow? Seachem recommends 3 round of Kanaplex lasts 2 days each.

before the treatment

current condition

I would follow what seachem says. When in doubt call their customer service number, they are extremely knowledgable and can answer all questions seachem related

Fish are not disposable commodities, but a worthwhile investment that can be maintained and enjoyed for many years, providing one is willing to take the time to understand their requirements and needs

Current Tank Info: 625g, 220g sump, RD3 230w, Vectra L1 on a closed loop, 3 MP60s, MP40. Several QTs

I would do a full course of 10-14 days. This way you can be sure that the infections is fully eradicated.

300g with velocity t4 for return and a Reflo dart on a closed loop, T5 lights & SRO3000 skimmer.

Current Tank Info: 300g
