 Getting an Emperor Scorpion. 1st time owner

Okay, so I’m going to be getting an emperor in the next month or so. The only pet store in town that has scorpions offers an "Emperor Scorpion Setup", which includes : an 8x8x8” Glass Exo-Terra terrarium, water dish, coco husk substrate, hiding log, calcium supplement, 25 crickets, decorative plant, and the scorpion (which range from 4-5 inches in-store).

The price for all of it is really competitive, but my only concern is about the size of the terrarium. Would an 8x8x8 (2 gallon) terrarium be large enough, even for a single scorpion?

I personally dont think that that cage would be big enough. The 12x12x12 cage would probably work well if you want to spend a little extra money. But if you get the "complete setup" your going to need to get the bigger cage anyway in the longrun.
