It depends on what species. Some stay fairly small.

Well there are dwarf varieties...but they only live 6 months to a year. They are not just well suited for home aquaria. If you absolutely have to have one, they are available but for expert only. Expert only means you basically need a marine biologist on hand.

I had a friend that had a mimic but he was a marine biologist that worked for a company that supplied to public aquariums.
