agressive botia modesta?

hi. First time user here, as well as first time keeper of loaches. I placed 2 botia modesta into my oscar tank to help with the scraps. The botias are larger, so the oscars dont really mind them, but one of the loaches keep on harrassing the other loach. I tried rearranging and additional hiding places, to no avail. Any advice? its a 75 gallon tank, btw, and the oscars are still small (3"-4") while the botias are around 5" I finally had to separate the agressive botia. Any advice on how to reduce agressivenes of botias?
