i recently added salt to my tank too to head off a bout of ich i seen coming a mile away, and now both my narrow leaf and my other java fern have some blacken edges and some black holes which i call it (burns) from the salt, but its still throwing off babies from the rizome thats are healthy and not (burnt) i think its some kinda adjustment to the change in your water. i dont know alot about aquarium plants but i know in house plants when a leaf is yellowing or dying remove it right away becuse the plant is wasting energy and nutrients trying to keep it alive, once you remove all the dead or close to dead leaves you willsee a boom in new leaves on the rizome. just my two cents
