Default Question about clearing mead with sparkaloid...

I racked my mead with bentonite and it cleared it quite a bit in a few days. Then I reracked it with sparkaloid and alot settled out at first but it's been almost a week and it looks like a lot of the particles are still suspended with no change the last two or three days. Do I need to rack again with more sparkaloid?

Glad people had some input for me...

I let it sit for four weeks with the sparkaloid, re-racked with more bentonite and after one week it was clear as could be. I then bottled it up and WOW it tastes good!
