I'm really sorry for your loss, but if the betta has singled out the other fish I doubt his fate will be much different. I'm not sure why the betta singled out the clown loach, but You should serperate the two. I would suggest taking the betta out and putting him in another tank instead of the loach. Bettas can survive in smaller tanks and they don't really need any other tank mates either. I would get him out asap. Just go spend about $20 at walmart on a new tank and supplies (it doesnt have to be a large tank) and move the betta. The betta will probably be happier by himself!
