I would separate the wounded salamander into its own tank. If their environments are clean and healthy and they are fed well, they should regrow limbs just fine. I would stop using the hydrogen peroxide and see how it heals on its own. Worked for one of my newts who lost one foot.

I don't think your other salamanders are helping.

Good luck.

Please see this wound care article. I don't seem to remember hydrogen peroxide being recommended.
