Shouldn't the word "für" be in this sentence.

No, German usually translates for X hour(s) as X Stunde(n) lang, but it is possible to omit the lang.

"Ich male jeden Tag eine Stunde" is accepted but "Ich male eine Stunde jeden Tag". This makes sure that the order is the same as in the English version, but I have a feeling that putting "eine Stunde" first maybe feels more natural in German. Am I wrong? Is the translation good? Should it be accepted?
