I'm glad to hear the salt perked him up a bit. Still, I'd test the water and keep an eye on temps. Monitor his behavior. It's possible he could have fin rot, so frequent water changes and continuing the salt treatment will help if that's what ails him. But it doesn't really explain his laying on the bottom of the tank. Get a thermometer. Keeping the temps in the high-70's at a minimum are vital to his immune system.

What size is your tank? Since they are warm water fish, they should be in water that's 76-80* F so if the room that he's in isn't a constant temperature in that range, you should get a heater. Also, if you don't match up the temp of the water he's in and the temp of the water in the tank after each water change, your fish will go into shock. When they go into shock they'll become lethargic and they'll start breathing very heavily.
