Honestly I would not waste your time with upgrading to a 30g because after couple of months of having that, you will want an even bigger tank. If your going to upgrade, wait for the $1 per gallon deal at petco and upgrade to a 40g breeder tank. That's the best deal unless you find something on craigslist at a deal.
Thanks. I probably wont bring that piece of dw to a new setup because it has so many little places where i can't clean, and I think it brings water quality down a little bit. And you bring up a great point about upgrading my tank. I love 40b's, except at 18 inches deep it would stick way too far out into my little room lol. But now you got me thinking. I might want a 38g... hmmmmm
