I stain it with etbr. I`m not sure if we can see SYBR stain in UV aparatus.

better to be safe than sorry i guess unless you are very certain the sybr will light up

Say I wanted to run a gel after finishing an RT-PCR SYBR green reaction, would I have to restain or would the SYBR in this master mix be enough the see?
that will actually depend on the sensitivity of your imaging equipement, so you might want to add more SYBR, or just EtBr as suggested, to make sure.
Alternatively, you can run your samples, check for SYBR, and if you cant see them, then stain the gel with EtBr post-electrophoresis.

yeah, if it doesn't show up I can just stain it afterwards anyway in more SYBR green.
