    I couldn't imagine anything smaller than 4", that might just be barely large enough. Some tessa guys use pvc so their rockwork doesn't collapse, tessa's can move around and collaspe even the largest rocks. You could also epoxy your rockwork to create a natural den. My friend's tessa has at least a 3" diameter.
