Males and females should NEVER be housed together except for breeding purposes. Someone is going to end up hurt or dead. Take him out of there!

Agreed!!!! You should never house ANY bettas together unless you have a female sorority. Take them out!

NEVER EVER EVER listen to pet store people or anything like that. They just want to sell they're fish. In a female sorority you need a tank 10+ gallons. Then you get lots of plants and hiding places. You need 4+ females. No less, they'll kill eachother.

Well if it's 24 gallons, then I would just make sure there's hiding spots and get a few more girls. But the male cannot be with them. I would get a smaller tank for him.

I wouldn't recommend keeping the male in with the females.
