Torn leaves still do all the same work of intact leaves. In time, new leaves will emerge to take over.
Small warning; do not cut the leaf stems off underwater if you want to remove them. This can cause the crown of underwater plants to fail.
Congratulations on raising this cute plant from seed!
PS: this could have been hail, not rain. Put something above it to protect it if thunderstorms are forecast.
