Aquarium Salt for New Betta?

Hello. I'm setting up a two gallon tank for a betta fish. I'm wondering if I should put a little aquarium salt in the water? I've heard this may prevent disease, but some sites say don't add salt.

The only time salt can or should be used is to treat disease, and a soon as they're healed a couple bigger water changes should be done to remove it.

My last Betta passed away after I had him a year. l I used a little salt with my last Betta. I am reading a lot now about Bettas so hopefully my new Betta will last longer. Some sites say use a little salt with Bettas, but I think I'll pass on the salt for now.
