Your betta should be alright as long as you keep his bowl clean, but it really is advisable to have a slightly larger tank with a filter/airator, and a heater.

You can't have a female and a male together, they will fight..They only like to come together if it's time to make little bettas. ;)

Welcome to the forum! A 1.5G is fine as long as you keep it crystal clear. A 1.5G should be cleaned twice a week 100% because ammonia builds up very quickly in smaller bowls/tanks. You should never have a female and male together unless it's a divided tank or for breeding purposes. If you put them in the bowl together, you'd end up with 2 dead fish. It's a big misconception that females aren't as aggressive as males but they can be just as aggressive.
