Announcing: My New YouTube Channel

Vikram Baliga

I'm happy to announce that I have created my own channel on YouTube. In this channel, I will be sharing videos that relate somehow to my dissertation work here at UC Santa Cruz. Thus far, I have uploaded some videos of interesting fish that I took at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA.

In the coming months, I will acquire live specimens of an obligate cleaner (either Labroides dimidiatus or Labroides bicolor) and a client species (most likely Zebrasoma veliferum) and house them together in one of my tanks at the Mehta Lab at UCSC. Using high-speed video, I will record the cleaning activity I observe in order to study the kinematics of cleaning behaviors. Once analyzed, these videos will also be uploaded to the YouTube channel. Stay tuned!
