hermit crab shells

So I have 5 hermit crabs in my 30g tank.

I need to get some spare shells for them to 'move house'

My LFS doesn't have any in and I'm wondering where I can get them from.

Would these from Petco be any good or are they not suitable for saltwater?

Your gonna shake all the water off before you put them in the tank. Tap water is fine. You might add 1-5 drop of rap water go your tank. Big whoop.
