Yes, I believe that's what nostrils are for ;)
Bettas in particular have a very keen sense of smell ... or so I've heard.

Was that what Isaiah did yesterday? I'm not sure how to explain without sounding strange, but he stretched his mouth out at me. If that was a little yawn then it was adorible.

OMG Amaya did something sooooooooo adorable I make a sqeaky noise. After I fed her lots of bloodworms, she opened her mouth like she yawned and a bubble came out. Fish burp?! :3 When it floated to the top she popped it XD.

I would've let out a squeal and a giggle. When Isaiah yawns at me I turn off his lamp for him so he can go to sleep easier.

Do Bettas have tounges?
Sometimes when mine gets excited he sticks out his toung.
I'm pretty sure he smells things. He's not very excited about dried shrimp. He swims away and pouts.
