i'm pretty sure the fish has been like this since i got it, but one of my RBP's fins are torn up. I'm assuming this heals up, but how long will it take and is there anything i can do to help him like add some salt?

Salt is not really needed, if it is just torn fins. It should heal pretty quickly.
I second that

While on this topic, salt should rarely be used on characins even on a severe body bite. Piranas have natural enzymes that promote nearly instant healing for majority of bites to the body and in particular the fins.

Frank, are you saying that salt is bad for piranhas?
I have 1 tablespoon of salt per 5 gallons in my piranha tank as a usual condition, is this a bad idea?
What do you do?
