      If your problem is with the filter flow taking them under, try containing the floaters to a corner or any area of the surface using fishing line tied to 2 suction cups. Keep line straight just at the water surface and roots of the frogbits will keep them within that area.

      What's your pH? I have tried frogbit in different tanks and it always died away over time. My pH is 8.1.

      Your other issue (This is a good one to have) is there aren't enough nutrients in the system. Effectively, you are currently reading 0 nitrogen. Could very well be that with your current bioload, you can only support the amount of frogbit you have minus 10% or so.
