Is it really curling? It's hard to see from the pic... it looks more like shredding from the pic.
Salt will not curl your guy's fins but changes in the chemistry of the water you're using might.
Curling sometimes will never go away, best thing you can do is keep his water as clean as possible.

it might be a lil bit of shredding and curling, maybe because of the DIY Co2 that I newly setup on the aquarium I heard this lowers the Ph of the water. Our tap water is 8.0 ph then when I tested his tank it says 7.8. what's the ideal Ph for them?
