They can probably eat 200 pellets in one gulp if they wanted to. Haha, i feed mine 2 pellets 2x a day. I reccomend at least 4, but it can always be different for bettas. Their stomach is the size of ther mouths . And its good that he's flaring (that should come down with time), and great that his colors good :)

Calm down.

A chunk missing from what? Body? Or tail?

There is a patch of skin under my betta's chin/ neck that is scaleless. If that's what you're talking about, then I'm pretty sure it's normal, or my betta's a lot more sick than I thought :P

Have you tried switching the food to get him to eat? My betta went off his flakes, then started eating when I got him some other brand of pellets. If your betta is out of his home and in a temporary house, it's possible that he's just super stressed, and will calm down soon.
