breeder tanks?

What exactly are breeder tanks? I keep hearing (for example) "40 gallon breeder tank. I just was wondering what that means, what the difference is between that and a normal tank, and if you are breeding fish, what are the advantages to having a breeder tank over a normal one. Thanks in advance

It's just a different design that is wider and shallower than the standard tanks. A 40b is 36x18, so it actually has a bigger footprint than a standard 55g.
