Question Betta has seen better days

Hi, I have a lovely male betta that has lived happily in a 25litre tank.I have been reading a few sites on betta's and they say they can be lonely so my husband & I sought advice from the aquarium nearby who advised that betta's like a harem of at least 3 females. We obliged his necessary needs. I come out in the morning , one week later to find my boys beautiful fins have been shredded overnight & he was agressive toward the females(don't blame him). I have sepparated the genders but what went wrong? Any advice for the future? They were a happy family for a week _ . Also - do the betta's fin's selfrepair?

Male and female bettas should only be together when trying to spawn them. Clean water will heal most ills.

Delete whatever bookmarks you may have and seperate the fish.

you were smart with separating them and over time the fins will grow back.
