Yes, ACFs need filtration and heater (though I had one as a child for many years w/o a heater),. Floating plants are fine but they will uproot anything that is planted.

Definitely do a google search to learn more about these frogs, as they have particular care instructions (like size of gravel). Mine ate some kind of pellet/sticks, but also ate any fish he could get in his mouth. We mostly gave him feeder goldfish.

Filtration is good, but lots of people don't use it.
Heater is important if you live where there is a winter period, they need temperatures like a tropical fish. About 24C.
When it comes to gravel/substrate, it's the same as corys. Make sure the gravel is small enough that it can pass through their digestive system if they eat it by accident.
They can eat fish food and reptile sticks, but like to eat feeder fish as an adult.
