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.
