Rubras

I have a trio of Betta Rubras,the 2 females are very sociable,the male is very unsociable.
My question is:
Is it a good idea to keep 2 females with 1 male,every thing I have read on Mouth Brooders says to keep 2 males with 1(or more?) females,that way the female won't breed the male to death.
Is it possible that the 2 females are keeping him skittish?
I was thinking of putting him in his own tank for awhile,to see if he will get over his shyness.
Any ideas?
Thanks
Bill

It could also just be his personality. In some of my wild betta tanks some of the fish are very outgoing and basically the same as a splendens, whereas others hide a lot and really only come out to feed (some of these I even bred myself!)

I wouldn't think the two females are keeping him skittish. Even though with mouthbrooders it is usually the female who pushes to spawn, most of my males have still been the dominant fish in the tank. Only time the female got hostile with the male was around spawning time.
