      Update: I decided to put the frog in a container floated in the regular tank. I googled a bit and thought warmer might be better than colder.

      My son's tiny frog, a longtime faithful companion in my community tank, started floating at the top of the tank for the first time today. The other fish were nipping at him and he was barely moving. My son was sick over it. All I could think to do was to remove him to a fish bowl filled with tank water, and add a couple of pinches of aquarium salt. He seems to be rebounding a little, but I wonder if it's the stress of moving him, and not really recovery. Is there anything else I can do to feel comfortable that I've done what I could? I have some medication for various parasites, but haven't added any fish to the tank in ages so I don't suspect that's the issue. The water quality is good, and I'm good with water changes and tank maintenance.
       
      The water temp in the aquarium is 77, and the water in the bowl I put him in will cool pretty quickly. Is cooler water likely to help or hurt?
