The length is 11 inch and the width (from bottom to rim) is 9.5 inches. The tank can hold 1.5 gallons

Hmm, that is pretty small. Normally I would recommend 25 watt, but idk if that will be too big for a tank that size. 25 watts should be ok for your tank as long as you watch it carefully. I like Hydor Theo heaters.

ok and back to pebbles. Instead of pebbles would sand be ok to get for my betta? He links to rest under his bridge and I think sand might be more comfortable ^^ I'm looking up the heater you recomned right now!

Sand is fine but it will probably make 100% water changes harder to do.

I use the Stresscoat that you linked to in my betta tank; as others have pointed out, you don't need both. I was looking at that rocky cave decor yesterday, and I think it will probably be too big for a 1.5 gallon tank. (I was considering it for a 5.5 gallon.) The floating log should fit in your tank; I have one in mine (5.5 gal) and that tank is also 9.5 inches tall.

I have sand in one of my kritter keepers which gets a 100% water change. If you don't put in too much sand, it's not really a problem. You just have to be a little more gentle when you dump out the water. I use my hand to swich the sand around a bit to get the debris to float then slowly tip the tank to get the water and debris out.

A filter isn't needed for a small tank that you will be doing the 100% changes on but if you want to have one - maybe one of these?

Ok now I have a HUGE problem. I tried to move him from his dirty water and he turned GRAY. What should I do? I put him back in his original water.

He's stressed. You need to acclimate him. How did you move him?
