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.

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.
