Crabs and betta?

Has anyone tried this? I feel like it would be really cool, in an obscure kind of way.

I mean, Imagine having an 8foot npt/terrarium. It would have enough room for everyone.

They like similar environments but I'm not sure if they are aggressive.

I would think that the craps would tear the bettas fins but I've never tried it and I don!t know that anybody has

I kept a crab with a betta about 15 years ago. The betta had severely ripped fins after about a week. The next day, there was nothing left of the crab but some bits of shell, and that fish was FAT.

In a LARGE tank like you're talking about though, it's probably fine. Just remember that crabs need a dry zone.
