I luff my clawed frog. Mine's still pretty small, but it's not even a year old yet. They can get pretty big, unless you mean dwarf frogs, which stay tiny. My little brother has 2 as well and thinks they're kewl pets.
Mine doesn't seem too sensative to water quality. Of course that's not an excuse to have crappy water quality, but they are pretty tolerent from my experiences.
I have a 10 gal tank that I clean usually once every 2 weeks or so. My brother as his 2 frogs in a 55 gal with two really good filters and he only cleans his about once a month, but he does do partial water changes more often.
I think when people talk about them being messy they mean that they are messy eaters, which they can be. I don't really have a problem with mine, I have to hand feed her so she just eats whatever I give her from forceps and doesn't really get any food in her cage. Be really careful not to over feed, becase then the water gets gross and these frogs are little piggies, they will eat themselves silly and get really fat! My brother just throws the food in his tank, and they eat it ALL, every last little piece they can find, so he doesn't have to worry about rotting food either. I think as long as you do water changes and vacume out the bottom of the tank - pretty much as long as you keep up with tank maintance, you should be fine.
