Loaches and Salt

I saw a message earlier on kuhlis and salt. How much salt, if any, do most of you use in your loach tanks (I'm particularly interested in clowns) on a regular basis (i.e., not just to treat disease). I'd like to keep the incidence of ick down, but I've heard that loaches don't do well with salt, plus my tank is pretty heavily planted and I've heard likewise that most plants don't like salt. Thanks in advance!
