2 Battery Bank, 1 Failed - Replacement Strategy?

I have 2 240 AH 8D AGM batteries as the house bank. They are charged as a single unit, but individually selectable for use/discharge. One battery has failed - a short in one of the cells was generating a lot of heat. So now the house bank is one healthy but aged 8D battery. My research is indicating that you shouldn't replace just one battery in a parallel bank... a huge cost hit if I have to replace both 8D batteries. What's the down-side/impact of only replacing one? Thanks!

I would replace both

I would also think about different batteries then 8d as house.
