Question Couple of Questions

I bought aquarium salts and have put them in my Betta's tank, now I have a couple questions about them:

-Do I keep putting them in or just when he's off-color (pun intended)?
-When I change 1/2 his water every other day, do I add more aquarium salts or just wait until I change all the water at the end of the week?

Now just an update on Merlin (my Betta) he's doing quite well. I bought him a plant that he doesn't seem to know how to feel about, though he is swimming around it now, so I'm happy about that!

Bettas don't need aquarium salts added on a continual basis. They really are only intended for medicinal use.

Most people seem to say that overuse of aquarium salt can lead to kidney problems in bettas.

His slime coat seemed to be coming off (he had thin, transparent tendrils on his fins that would fall off, long with some patches that came off as well).
