Since they stay in the water quite a bit, I'd recommend getting a decent filter. I have mine setup 2/3 water and 1/3 land with a bunch of plants, corkbark shore, etc... I feel that it's necessary to have a biologically stable environment and I do weekly water changes on the tank. If you test the water your frogs are in, I'm sure it'll make you buy a filter since the ammonia levels will be VERY high since they defecate directly into the water and without some sort of area for aerobic bacteria to properly congregate and circulate water(i.e. filter with pump) then you run into the problem of the inability or crippled ability for ammonia to enter the nitrogen cycle which is bad and since frogs tend to absorb anything directly through their skin, you will create a terrible situation... I will say that I occasionally had issues with a few troublemakers that didn't want to eat for some odd reason and were being outcompeted, but I isolate "skinnies" and feed them individually if this occurs. I've had lots of fun with my mossies and the calls are definitely interesting without being ridiculously loud (see kassina maculata or solomon island eyelash frogs for explanation of loud calls.)
