Yeah they get large but at the same time they are still a small central disk with long legs. They can make themselves very compact and mine doesn't roam around very much he pretty much stays under the same rock. Your other choices are pretty much going to be hermit crabs, snails or flat crabs like emerald crabs. Or shrimp. Alot of people like to put sexy shrimp in a small tank they are a smaller species.
