Exclamation Question about salt in Qt with Frankie in there......

This is another thread regarding my Pink Kissing Gourami Frankie with popeye...
I just did a 35% water change in the qt(10Gal) and am wondering if I should put more salt in it since I just took some out... salt helps with osmoregulation?
Should I add 1 tbsp?

Thanks!

I always add what I take out of my qt during water changes.

Usual amount...

I put 2 tbsp in my qt before the water change....
I changed about 30% of the water then added Maracyn in effort to treat the popeye.. But I haven't replaced the salt yet.. Should I still do that?

30% is about 2 teaspoons of salt.

I'm ready for the pressure.

I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
