Question Oto catfish and other fish

I have had 3 otos in my first fish tank with my betta. Everybody gets along great. But I bought 3 Friday for my 2nd fish tank, and they are obsessed with my female betta. They look like they are trying to attach to her. I've never seen otos do this before. Anybody have any ideas on what I should do? I took my female out for now and put her in a separate hospital tank because she was getting very stressed with them chasing her. I put a spinach leaf in for them to eat in hopes they'd calm down. Has anyone else had this experience?

I can't say I've ever heard of otos doing that. Strange for normally such a shy, passive fish.

I noticed in Flair's tank they usually stay to one side when doing water changes. But in this tank they follow where my water is being poured into the tank. They are definitely a lot different than any oto I've seen.

Maybe they arent otos.
Mine were very very shy. Probably the most shy fish ive every had, probably lacked the most personality.

The otos in my display tank also exhibit this type of behavior during water changes.
