Identify Costa Rican delicacies

I was in Costa Rica a few years ago, and ate fish that appeared to be cooked but wasn't -- it was in some kind of juice that "cooks" the fish. What is this method of cooking called and how is it done? Also, I drank something that night that after a few hours made me feel a little nauseous and was accompanied by hallucinations (like rocks splitting open revealing water and snakes inside). Any idea what I could have drank? And where can I get more of it?

hermaphroditic breeding fish?

I recently read about a fish where the male subsumes itself into the female and becomes merely a pair of testes that feed the ovaries or something. Does anyone know anything about this weird fish?

Koi carps in Chinese restaurants

Ever notice the fish tanks with koi carp near the entrance in many Chinese restaurants? A friend told me that they are actually there to indicate (perhaps through the number or type of fish?) whether the restaurant owner has paid up to the local Chinese mafia (triad). Is there any truth to this or is it just another urban legend?

Discrete nano-reef filtation and heating?

I want to set up a 3gal nano reef tank (possible slightly larger, up to 10gal). I want the system to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible, namely by keeping any equipment out of sight. Could I just drill two holes in the tank, and use a powerful external canister filter, to filter the water and provide water movement? Or is a seperate powerhead necessary? In addition, is there an external way of heating the water, without the use of a sump? Thanks a lot.

TOTALLY GROSSED OUT!

I found a very small (live) worm in my cod dinner. This cod was line caught on Saturday in New Hampshire's Atlantic. It was given to me by the fisherman. It spent 3 days in the fridge. I had baked the fish for 13 minutes at 400 degrees. It was white and flakey. As I was eating (after I had eaten over half), I noticed a circular thing, about 1/2 cm in diameter, which looked odd. I poked at it with my fork where I noticed it was alive. It was very thin and about an inch long. Am I going to die? Is there anything to do? [more inside]
