Clown loaches with red, red gills

The gills on my loaches are looking very, very red. I can see the blood vessels quite well, and I'm worried about them. The tank is heavily oxygenated with two powerheads, so I think they're getting enough oxygen. Could it be the aquarium salt that I added? Salinity is about midway between freshwater and brackish.

Thanks, Ben
