Possible eggs?...a tumor?...overeating?
Otherwise acts normal..no sign of any infection.
He/she is a little over 10 years old.
This "bulge" started appearing about 3 weeks ago and is slowly growing.
If anyone has any idea what this possibly is or has ever seen anything like this with a pleco, please let me know.
Thanks in advance :-)

Unfortunately I agree with Cocoa. Not good news, but hopefully we're wrong.
