Do you think he's on his side due to having only an inch of water in the bowl (too little water and they can have issues righting themselves)?
I dont have any stress coat, and its enough water for him to be upright. He is just laying down on the bottom, I went ahead and put the epson salt in and I have his bowl floating in the tank. I was worried about him getting cold.

My mom thought he was dead so she scooped him up in toilet paper and threw him back into the little bit of water remaining. He started swimming around. He lived 5 years, and that was probably about 1 year into us having him. They are resilient little fish. I felt awful when I found out what happened years later. I never knew his bowl had fallen. But, again, the moral is they are tougher little guys. Good luck. I bet he will be fine.
That makes me feel a little better thanks for sharing that with me.
