Question Aquarium salt question

I recently moved Finnick from a 1 gal to a 2-2.5 gal tank. When I moved him, about half the water in his new tank was "new," and the rest was from his 1 gal. I had a tsp of salt in that first tank. I want to add salt to this tank, but I don't know how much to add. Can I add two tsp, or should I stick to one in case some of the salt from the first tank moved over with the water?

That's a whole other thread. I've been fighting with fin rot, tail biting, or both, so I'm trying to keep the water extra conducive to healing. I heard it aided in overall health.
