Just a question

Hello, this is just a question, the other day I was on google and saw a picture of a hermit crab In a glass shell
And was wondering if that was safe? Can that be damaging to the crab?
Like if his body was exposed to the light?

hermit crab not moving

ok, one of my crabs has not moved in over 48 hours like he hasn't gotten out and moved,
his shell has remained in the same location, and i think is to big for him, any suggestions.
PS: he is alive, cuz when i pick him up he retracts farther, but still hasn't come out.
