Wait until the leaf is "well dead" before pruning. It won't hurt anything to leave the leaf on there for a bit. Plants will recover some nutrients from dying leaves before they are done. It takes...

Too hot, and the chlorinated water didn't help at all.

Agree, the Pennywort is great and the leaves should orient, no problem. I have rooted it, but it grows better (faster) floating. Fertilize the tank as normal and should be good to go.
