If he does not seem to improve over the next few days, def let us know! Also, in respect to the salt, you can increase the dose for an amount appropriate for a 12-15g tank (theraputic dose for this size tank @1 tablespoon). Because you mentioned your moor having droppy fins after adding the 1/2tsp, lets not increase the amount yet. After a water change tommorrow, add another 1/2 teaspoon (pre-dissolved) slowly. Add a little bit each hour over a few hrs. This will bring the salt amount up to 3/4th teaspoon. The next day (after 50% water change), slowly add another 1/2tsp. If you notice any strange behavior after adding the salt, stop adding it immediately & do a 50% water change. Let us know how things are going in a few days!

Did you keep the actual filter media & just dumped out the carbon or did you remove the filter all together?

The carbon really isnt necessary in any filter unless you are removing meds or odors. It actually has no effect on salt at all. You can add some additional media to your filter for more room for your bacteria to grow on- stuff the empty filter holder/bag with some polyfill or stick a piece of filter foam/sponge in with the old filter. This is really all you need.
