Crayfish small enough for 20 gallon high?

Hi! I'm wondering if there are any crayfish species other than the dwarf species that are small enough to live in a 20 gallon as adults. I have kept dwarfs before and while I liked having them I'd love to have something larger. Most of the larger species I've seen have a minimum of 30 gallons so I'm curious to know if there are any species out there that would be small enough. Thanks!

Mexican dwarfs. They're orange and so cute. I've never had them but they stay really small. I want to get some but I don't have the space or money. :/

Most single cray can live in 10 gallon so with a 20 gallon I wouldn't worry just don't buy
Cherax quadricarinatus or red claw crayfish these guys grow over 10"
what type are you looking at? or what's available to you will narrow things down

I've had dwarfs before. I liked them but I'm looking for something a little bit bigger this time.

I don't really have anything specific that I'm looking at. I'm not sure what's available around me but my LFS can order stuff in and I was looking at some of the ones on aquatic arts.

A 20gal will be fine for a single cray just put a few hiding places in and keep the water clean and he'll be fine
