An adult can quite happily live in a 5 litre cereal container from asda and such, so a 5 gallon exo would be more than big enough.

12inch cube is about 5 gallons that's to smallest one
I think that will be ok. I know with my P. ornata I was recommended to get the 30x30x45 but then I think Ornata grows to be the biggest by a noticeable amount.

Rufilata and Ornata are the biggest 2 yeah, The metallica is one of the smaller ornamentals, youll be lucky to see 7 inches when mature if female. As with most ornamentals the males have a similar span but are dead skinny looking compared to females. A 12in cube will be fine.
