Its fine temporarily, but you don't want to keep him in there for long....and you want to clean that tank every day to prevent ammonia buildup.
You can always search Craigslist in your area for tank deals, people will go pretty cheap on used 5-10 gallon tanks with all sorts of accessories even. Another option is 'Kritter Keepers'. Medium size is about 2.5 gallons and they're around $'ll still have to clean that 2-3 times a week, but its more room for your guy and less of a hassle then a half gallon, plus they can be safely heated which a smaller tank can't be.

Is a light a necessity? I keep a lamp on all day next to the tank but I turn it off at night is that okay?

Thats fine.. most people have lighted tanks because its easier to see your fish that way. I have one tank that I never turn the light on in because it stresses out my fish. Lighting is however you feel comfortable doing it. Just stay away from incandescent bulbs in your tank because they get really hot.
