Betta Splendens Vs Clown Loaches

Hi there I just added 3 tiny clown loaches to my tank the already was inhabbited by a Gold Nugget Pleco (L177) and a male Betta Splendens. My Betta just won't let my Clown Loaches alone and keeps attacking them. I noticed that my Betta build cuite a huge nest the last couple of days. So I was wondering that the Betta is just defending that? Strangely enough he doesn't harm my pleco. Does anyone know a solution to this problem?
