QT Tank questions

I may go out to buy a small tank today to use as a QT. Some questions:

1. How big should it be? Is a gallon tank alright? What about a bowl?
2. Would I need a filter for it if I'm changing the water daily?

Thanks

I bought a 10g kit on sale that I will set up for QT purposes & is currently housing 5 new females. I also have 2 1g Mini Bow tanks that I bought when I initially got into Bettas, on the rare occasions I use one I do not use a filter but I do use the Betta Bowl Heater.

I personally like to use a 1 gallon tank. They are easier to heat than bowls, and easier to clean 100% if you're doing salt/medicine treatments that require 100% daily water changes. And they don't take up much room is a plus, too.

I like the idea of a 1 gal tank.
I have a 7 watt heater in my normal tank. Could I use that in the QT?
