Looking to buy a terrarium tank

I'm looking for one of those tanks with the open fronts w/ doors. I've seen Exo Terra and Zoo Med Naturalist tanks, but are there other brands with different dimensions? My stand can support at most 15"x30" at the base, but most of the tanks by the above brands are 12"x12" (which it too small) or 18"x18". Anything out there that is more wide than square?

If you want an "off" size you'll have to DIY one... there are lot of tutorials out there for how to do it, for both glass and acrylic, you can do sliding doors or hinged doors, as well as customize the ventilation better for your needs.

We have an exo terra for our hermit crabs and there are a few things I'm not thrilled with about it considering the cost (even though I got mine on sale at a good price)... I want to build them a much larger terrarium so I've been looking into how to do it myself

Look at Tetrafauna Reptohabitat. They make one in 30x13x16 with front sliding door.
