    Has anyone seen this website?
    Tips on Choosing an Aquarium for Pet Hermit Crabs | Expert Village Videos
    It's a woman named Debbie Noah who has been keeping hermit crabs for 14 years (or so they claim)
    She's doing these videos to help parents, teachers, owners to teach them how to take "proper" care of hermit crabs.
    Watch and laugh/get mad.

    Look through all of her videos, you just want to call her up and scream at her, "WHAT THE edited by mod WERE YOU DOING? 14 YEARS???"

    A while back someone posted a link to her videos as a "What Not to Do For Crabs" link. You CAN register on the site and leave comments....I did:D....I couldn't believe she calls herself an expert....I better not get started:mad:! I don't remember if the link was from this forum or another one that I was reviewing? Seems like someone here posted the link. But yes, I've seen all of her video clips for crab care:rolleyes: on "Expert Village"

    Yes, I've seen all of them and politely, but strongly, said she a crab killer. I can't find anywhere to say anything to the producers, but I have criticized every one of her videos and given the reason why.

    If someone can get a headquarters name/address, I would be very happy to contact them and explain that she's is nothing more then a crab killer.

    I'd really love to know her credentials.

    Apparently her only credentials are I believe 11 or 14 years of keeping hermit crabs.

    krackersmom- I think you misspelled a word. I'm sure you meant 'killing' not 'keeping'

    Hildegard...I stand corrected...she is in fact a crab killer and not a crab keeper.

    She doesn't know anything, other than what she reads on the labels of commercial Hermit Crab supplies. So again, nothing.

    The poor hermit crabs seemed frightened. She was shaking them around. Gosh I wonder how many hermit crabs she's gone through.

    My mum's watching Dr Phil (Heroin addicts! lol) So I've just been reading the video transcripts at the bottom of the page, and I just feel really sorry for the sheer amount of hermies she must have killed over the years!

    Apparently you can get UP TO a ten gallon aquarium, if you want a "whole colony of hermit crabs..." Well, gosh. Sorry everyone, you're all wrong, go exchange all your big glass aquariums for either 10g tanks or little plastic tanks!

    And as for this business with "fancy shells," well, I don't know where to start. And the worst part of this is people are believing her!

    Major :(age.
