Sounds great :) I bet he is very happy he is being taken great care of.
But on a side note - don't let anyone put you down for using a 1.5g tank. There is nothing wrong with that. One gallons make perfectly good homes when people care for them properly. I have many under 2 gallons.. I use many .33, .66 gallons too even.
As long as you take care of it, the 1.5g is just fine for a home.. so don't think twice if you decide not to let it go to waste and you want another :) Some people believe they need to have larger tanks.. it's more to make us happy than them. All they care about is clean water, warmth and food.
