    Snorkeling in Costa Rica?

    We saw one saltwater crocodile while fishing in the mangroves. IME snorkeling is not a reason to go to Costa Rica because there isn't much to see with respect to corals. We saw a good selection of fish when snorkeling. Water clarity is not very good and supposedly that's because there is a lot of sediment in the water from all the rivers that flow into the ocean. Rivers have a lot of sediment from all the farming. We had a great trip and we saw a ton of monkeys, sloths, amphibians, reptiles and birds. The Macaws and Toucans were amazing. Here is a link to some of those photos and videos. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get pictures of the Macaws or Toucans we saw. We did go on a catamaran boat trip where we saw a couple whales and went snorkeling at one spot. After snorkeling there were large tangs schooling near the boat and i got a short video of them being fed some crackers. They were probably 18" to 24" long long and looked similar to a Dussumieri Tang. https://photos.app.goo.gl/utctsFBcx6mbBPpT8
  10. Traveling to Costa Rica next week for my brother's wedding. Wondering if anyone has been there and if they have snorkeled from the shore or have taken a snorkeling trip from a boat? From my research online it doesn't look like very good snorkeling. We'll be staying near Manuel Antonio National Park on the Pacific Ocean side of the country. Looks like they have a pretty good variety of fish but not much from a reef standpoint. TIA

    WTB: Apex classic and UV sterilizer.

    sorry i should have clarified i need a UV larger than 25 watts cause that's what i have but i don't think it's large enough to kill parasites in a fish QT setup. I'm looking for a full setup of the apex and considering paying $225 on reef2reef for the brain, display, eb8 and temp probe. not sure what a brain and screen go for but i'd prefer not to have to buy components separately. thanks! looking for the apex classic so i can use it as backup on my DT. thanks!
  12. Wondering if anyone has an Apex classic that is in good working condition and are looking to sell. This is for a QT setup so it doesn't need to be too fancy but it would be nice if it was the orange label classic so it could also be back up to what i have for the DT. Also, need a larger UV sterilizer since i have (2) 40 breeders for QT now.

    Best quarantine method?

    i use the same medications you listed and have had good luck. here is a link to a reef2reef thread that i found helpful. there are many different ways to setup a QT. my QT setup consists of a 40 breeder with sump, UV and protein skimmer. I only run the UV and protein skimmer when i'm not medicating. i like to try and give the fish a week to get acclimated and eating well before i medicate the tank so that's when i run the UV and skimmer. hope that helps. https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/how-to-quarantine.189815/?utm_source=newsletter_1&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=February_26_2016
