First thing is test the water. Once water quality is ruled out it might be an internal problem....

I had a sick ADF with internal problems and he did exactly what yours is doing, kept on floating.... Then he blew up like a balloon so i figured he might have bloat.. fed him some pea/garlic/bloodworm mix and over time he got better. I also increased water changes...

Its hard to know most of the time whats wrong with them. Are the frogs new? how strong is the filter...? most filters should be able to keep a ADF in place.
