Your Quarantine Tank: What precautions do you take?

In your quarantine tank, what precautionary medicine do you use? I've heard some use Paraguard or PraziPro for all new fish in their quarantine tank, as a precaution. I've also heard using nothing, because if your new fish have a disease, you want it to come out before the fish get added to your main tank. I was contemplating on using aquarium salt on a permanent basis as a precautionary measure.

What do you use?

Mainly nothing for fish. I actually buy more plants in a year so have started treating them / sitting in a bucket for a few days with bactericide just in case. Basically stopped putting them straight in the tank anyways.

In my last tank I didn't have a quarantine tank, for now I have a bit of salt and I'll keep them there for two days while O observe.
