Sick loach

I have had five small loaches in a community tank for several months, and they seem to be doing well. I did a water change, about 35%, two weeks ago, and have just noticed one loach has a ragged tail fin, and traces of white on the tail and one fin. He's also much thinner. He's eating and active and all other fish appear healthy. Any suggestions? What are your thoughts on adding salt to water? Thanks
