Cherry shrimp are capable of living in a mildly saline environment should they be acclimated to it slowly.

The thing is that aquarium salt (overpriced table salt) is useless for treating disease. You'd be much better off using an actual medication. Unfortunately, most of these will kill shrimp so you'd need to remove the ill fish to a 'hospital tank' for treatment or give the shrimp their own tank.
