I have been conditioning them with live black worms, live fruit flies and will be adding daphnia or brine shrimp to the lot. Though I heard a full protein diet might not suit well for Betta and some type of plant-based food should be added?
You could leave the male in the tank. The fins will heal fin no infection as long as the water is clean.
The reason for not letting them see each other is... When they see each other too much they can become use to each other and the spark is not there when you want it. Some say the stress of seeing each other is not good. So people might leave the females with in site of male it depends. Maybe others can add some info about this.
