Bristlenose Eating Too Much

So guys I bought a approximately 1 inch bristlenose pleco yesterday which has been constantly eating which is a good thing and when ever I look at it, it poops come out larger than him. At first I was happy that he is eating and healthy but now I am concerned that he might be eating too much he has not stopped for even a second lol

I've had my BN pleco for over a month now and I've learned that lots of eating and lots of pooping is what makes him happy and healthy. It's normal ☺
