Salt in a tank

One of my books, "The guide to a healthy aquarium" advocates adding salt at 0.1% w/v to the water. This is to reduce the osmotic pressure of the water, so the fish are more "isotonic", and this presumable makes them happier.
My other 5 fish books never mention adding salt to the water, except to help treat certain diseases. My question: How many of you add salt to your fish tanks, and how much?
Another question, I seem to have a dim recollection of learning that Kuhlie Loaches are sensitive to salt, and that salt should not be added to a Kuhlie tank. Has anyone heard of this before?
