African Dwarf Frogs

I've been considering getting some ADFs and I had a few questions.

1. Do they NEED a filter?
I've read that they are weak swimmers and do fine with just frequent water changes, but was wondering if anyone actually had them in an unfiltered tank.

2. What is the ideal temperature?

3. I want at least 2 or 3 so what's a good tank size?

And if there's anything else you think I need to know... I promise I'm doing research though.

Note: They would be housed separately from my bettas.

Well, I know they don't need a filter, my friends adf lived for four years without a filter. I live in orange california and my friends didnt need heat, and for 2 or 3 maybe a five gallon.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

But would it be okay to have a five gallon without a filter?

The water would have to be changed more often if there is no filter and it's not cycled.
