I would say - relax, it's only a tear in the fin. Sounds small, though. I've faced them plenty of times, it works out fine and you seem to be doing the best things you can.

Also, doesn't salt kill live plants?

Not so much in the amounts of treating an injured/sick fish.

They will stop growing near as much, and if exposed to salt for a lengthy amount of time, they might either discoler, or lose some of their more prominent bushiness.

A simple treatment of a couple days or a week or two of salt will have very little negative effects on the plants.
