I was thinking that i would rather get a proper glass front vivarium are is there a good one that i should go with?
Minimum requirements for a leo are 24x18x18 imo.
You are right to go for a single one of either sex as even females can take a dislike to eachother. They can seem fine for a long time but may suddenly turn. They prefer to have their own space and territory and will love being on their own so no need for companions.

Plenty of info on leos on the lizard section
