Why is the 30 breeder so hard to find?

I'm about to set up my 20 long. But maybe next year I plan to move up to a 30 breeder. So I was curious about prices and called 2 LFS. They said they can't order one. Has this size been discontinued?.......For those who are going to tell me to get a 40 breeder, keep these in mind.

1. The largest tank we're allowed to have at this apartment complex is 25 gallons, so I could probably be more likely to get away with a 30 rather than 40.

2. I think the dimensions and surface area/floor space to gallons ratio of the 30 is more impressive.

3. WC's are easier. I use half tap and half distilled water. And don't want to invest in a RO that connects to the water supply.

4. The 30 will fit in the car easier. We don't have a truck.

A good Aqueon distributing store should be able to get a 30b.Deep blue is making them now also . Many 'reef' stores are selling the Deep Blues as they are cheap in compare to other tanks not on sale.
The 40b is only 4 inches taller then the 30b . They have the same foot print..If you loaded up a 40 with hardscape you might no have more then 30g water easily anyways which would help with water changes possibly ?
I own a couple 30bs and they are great tanks but also have 40bs and use either for the same application. In theory due to surface area and footprint , done properly a 30b should support the same number of fish as the 40b IMO..
