Hello, I'm doing a Research project on the Bristlenose Pleco and one of the questions I want to answer is what purpose do the bristles serve. Now I've looked everywhere for this and found very little information and the info I have is that the Bristles are for...

A: Mating as they represent larvae which attracts the female
B: Mating but the female choses the BN with the largest Bristles
C: Used much like a catfishes whiskers to find food

I was wondering if someone could tell me which of these are true or if they are all true and if you can link to a website or article that explains this.
Thank You For Your Help
Sincerely, Nathan
