Red face betta with ADFs?

Hey,
i'm new to this forum, and i was just wondering,
would i be ble to keep a male betta (found one i like in local pet shop - haven't yet got him though - so no idea of his temprement) and 2 african dwarf frogs in reasonably well planted 6.11 gallon hexagonal tank?
it doesn't have a filter, but does have a heater?

also, if i did get the betta and the frogs, how many water changes would i have to do per week, and what percentage?

and what order should i put the animals in? betta first, or froggies?

(i'm so happy i'm allowed to get a betta - i've wanted one for a while, so i'm just buzzing right now!! YAY!!!!)

I would get a filter. If you don't you will need to do one 100% water change every week which is difficult in tanks over 3-5 gallons.

So…

No filter:
One 50% and one 100% every week.

Filter:
One 50% every week.

Also, I don't recommend any tank mates except snails or shrimp in tanks less than ten gallons.

If u still want a betta u can get a 3-4 gal kritter keeper for about 10$, a heater for another 10$, gravel and silk plants for 15$ food for 4$, or even a ten gal from Walmart for 12$! Need a hood though.

Grats that you got the ok to get a betta :)

Just tossing this out there but Petco has an internet sale on until the 5th of may. 19.99 on a 2.5 gal. Just need a heater. (wouldn't suggest using the tank divided either) but here is the link.
