Salt and dwarf gourami

My dwarf gourami has a few little nicks in his scales plus he's getting fat eating before my other fish so I put him in quarentine. When I added the salt it was not all dissolved and it looks like he ate a small piece as it was falling through the water. Anything to be concerned about with him eating it? Im at 4 tbs per 10 gallons right now to try to heal him. Haven't fed for 2 days. Was thinking about feeding a pea tomorrow. Haven't seen any poo in the 3 days hes been in quarentine.

I think this may be dwarf gourami iridovirus. I've quit feeding and now he's just hanging out at the bottom of the tank. Thought maybe a parasite but more and more i think its genetic. Its built up over a few months. If his scales start to expand I will have to euthanize him. I really like this particular fish too. 😪
