    vent/anal protrusion or what??

    Hi all. Have had my pond(s) for over 10 years. This female is 10-11 years old. Never had issues in this pond w/anything other than some ulcers here and there.
    Just noticed this weird white swelling, protrusion from her vent/anal cavity on her today. caught her to grab a close-up shot. I have absolutely no clue what this could be.
    anyone??
    she is acting normal. water quality is fine. she seems to be eating normally.

    She's probably getting ready to spawn.

    Female's vents do protrude when they get larger. It's nothing to worry about.
