How big should its enclosure be?

So I've decided to get a bigger enclosure for my Chromotopelma cyaneopubescens (mostly for my convenience so it's easier to feed it, but it will need a bigger cage soon anyway.). However, I don't know exactly what size I would need for it.

The maximum dimensions for the cage would have to be 18 * 11 * 9 (length * width * height) to fit in the location I currently have its cage in.

I found these two cages here http://www.tarantulacages.com/terrestrial.html

Medium Terrestrial Cage 13"x7"x7" (LxWxH)
Small Terrestrial Cage 10"x5"x7" (LxWxH)

Seem good?

Lol forgot to put that.

I'd say 2-2.3 inches. It'd not done growing, but from what I've read I'll expect it to be 4.5-6 inches.

I was thinking that I could go on ahead and get the cage I would need, but if I have to wait I will.

It's just gotten to that size where it's hard for me to feed him in his cage because he can escape easily.

Small would do but if you want it to last longer no harm in going for medium.

Just fill it up with loads for decor as anchor points for webbing :)

Alright thought that would be fine.
Thanks!
Adult GBBs will utilize all the space you provide them in some cases. I've seen containers that were 10"x8"x8" containing a 4" GBB and the entire container was a cloud of webbing.
