I think I remember the notifications thing, but wasn't it at the top right by the "Welcome, (name here)"? Now all I see is a link to my Private Messages which tells me whether I have an unread one or not. I've looked through my settings and don't remember ever changing anything. Hmm. Very odd. Is that where your notifications are, or am totally missing something and thinking it's somewhere it's not?
I got the other Checkerboard cichlid.. Aka Hercules Cichlid. =\ I didn't have internet access on my phone at the time so I didn't realize it was the 'wrong' fish. Very similar though.. Unfortunately one didn't make ot, they were already picking on each other a ton and I think that and the move stressed the one out too much. The one remaining is fine though. They aren't as pretty as D. Filamentosus so I'm still on the search for them. Wet Spot said they get them in the Spring or Summer usually.. With my luck, my LFS will get them again right after I order online LOL
