18" was the front to back measurement for that tank, and 12" was the height, which was why I was curious whether the height was anything to factor. The more I'm thinking about this I guess that would make the "30-gallon breeder" actually a 33-gallon, but given the focus on the length and depth of a tank over its height I'm guessing that the height is not as much of a factor.

Well, I'll just have to see what I have to work with space-wise (and possibly landlord-wise) and everything when I decide to get some BGs. I may have to wait a bit longer on these, but I will definitely keep what I learned here in mind when I do set to work on this tank. Perhaps in the meantime I can use it with customers at work.

Once again, thanks for the responses, Byron.

I just remeasured my 33g and I was correct, the length is 36 inches, the width front to back is 12 inches and the height is 18 inches. If you're looking at a 30g that is 36 length and 18 width front to back, that is better and fine. The height is not the critical part of the size.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

All right, I thought that was what I was understanding from what you were saying but had wanted to be sure that I was understanding correctly. Good to know I was.

The trick would be finding one...but I could always (probably) go larger if not.
