Default Large Scale Model

Does Fluent have a limitation on size of the domain? I am currently modelling a tank with 30m long and 4 m depth but the inlet and inlet are just 0.1m.

I setup a 2D mesh about 200,000 cells in total. But it takes 2 days to reach convergence. I am just wondering is it possible to scale down the model with a factor of 10? And once it is scaled down, will the result be unreliable?

Thanks for reading
