Males are happy alone. It depends on the size of the tank for a heater and filter. They're recommended but for bigger tanks usually. I would get him a 5 gallon kit that comes with a filter, then you could buy him the cheap mini heater to go in it.

I'm glad you took everyone's advice and removed the male. The tank you have should be perfect for a sorority. It's ideal to have 5 females or more together. Keep and eye on them.
They will fight a little to establish a pecking order but if it gets too aggressive it's time to remove them.
Good luck!
