Loaches and Ghost Shrimp

I am trying to find an "algae" eater for my aquarium. I have had a plecostomus (grew too big) and snails (got eaten). I had a clown plecostomus but he was eaten by the common pleco I also had in the aquarium. I have live plants and two Ottos and am looking for another algea eating creature who will eat the long whispy algae that is growing.
Then I thought about ghost shrimp. They are good cleaners. But here's the problem, will my clown loaches make a meal out of the shrimp or will they leave him alone. I have not purchased the shrimp yet until I know that my clowns won't eat him. I have 4 clown loaches. One is 12 years old, one is 11 years old and two are 3-4 years old. I have a 48 gallon aquarium.
Any thoughts on the subject would be great!
