Since we're picking nits, I guess eg should've been e.g. and followed by a comma. O dear.

That's not a universal rule. If you're submitting formal articles to be published in a journal, the publisher will tell you which citation style to use (eg: CMS, AMA, etc.). Some base the rule on colons separating dependent and independent clauses. Your usage is correct, and so is his/hers.

Repeat after me: unless it is a proper noun, you do not capitalize following a colon.
