Yellow Eye Kole Tang - big belly?

My tang has a "big belly". Not sure if that is the correct name or location, but I just noticed the bulge. Is this normal after eating or is something wrong with him?Click image for larger version

Are you feeding freeze dried foods? That can cause this such things in some fish.
Either way, I'd assume constipation in your fish. Keep an eye on it and what your tang is eating.

Feeding ocean nutrition formula 1 and 2. Been feeding that for years. Need more seaweed or mysis shrimp?

Have you had this fish for years? Don't make a change on something that has worked for years on what is an assumption on my end. I'm a frozen food and seaweed guy, but that doesn't mean it is right.

Have there been any changes at all in the system or in your routine?
