I think glass feeding dishes are use more often by shrimp breeders because, well it's glass, you really can't go wrong with glass having anything "weird" in it. If I were to rate the difference I would say Clay/Terra Cotta is 85-90% shrimp safe while glass is practically 99.99% ;)

When it comes to shrimps I don't want to take shortcuts because in the end my shrimps are worth the most. If I were to buy a cheap feeding dish and save at most $3-$4 and have even 1 dead shrimp as a result, its no longer worth it.
glass actually could have toxic coating too. Most of the time we buy glass cause it doesnt look as uhhh orange or bulky as those things.

Though if it's pyrex it usually is laboratory grade so it should be clean. Other cheap glass options......I would be just as wary as with ceramic
