Hermit crab in glass shell

Some people are commenting that it is cruel but I don't really understand why. I would love to add a couple of glass shells to my tank to see if any of my crabs would move into them. Any idea where I can get some?

The fish will attack the crab in a regular shell. They will only try once and give up when they find out the shell is protecting the crab.

Of course I don't keep crabs with crab eatin fish :)

But wouldn't you have problems with algae growing on it, thus ruining the desired effect?

I agree with prof on this, I don't think it is cruel... if the hermit does not like it, it would switch out shells.
