Would a small breeder box with dimensions of 8 inches long x 8 inches wide x 5.5 inches high be too small to house a 3.5" Aphonopelma chalcodes?

I am currently keeping a slightly smaller Grammostola pulchra in that enclosure, and it works fine.

I would consider upgrading once the spider no longer has 2x its legspan in any horizontal direction.

I also have a large Exo Terra faunarium I could always fill with deep substrate. Would this be the better option?
