Salt is supposed to promote the slime coat in fish.
After some research, I added salt in my tanks for over a year. I noticed no difference in health or activity with the salt. I actually overdosed my tank with salt, which included angelfish, clownloaches, dwarf gouramis, L-18 plecos, neon tetras. When I did a WC on my 55 gallon, I would remove about 20 gallons of water, I would add salt for 55 gallons. I would do this at every WC, until I noticed that I was adding too much salt. As I mentioned, I noticed no difference in health or activity even with the over dosed salt.
I eventually stopped, since the salt was getting rather expensive to be continuously used.
