30 gal may be fine for swimming space but you would need to supplement heavily with purchased or cultured pods(external of tank and fuge). Same is likely for your tank size.

Even with transferring things give the tank time to mature again so time to figure out what to do with manderin

Moving to a bigger aquarium

There are one or two tangs that a 70g suits well. A 75g would suit a few more types though.
The ones you can house in a 70 are:
1. Kole Yellow Eye - most commonly housed in a tank of this size.
2. Bristletooth Tomni - Second most common I've seen.
Liveaquaria lists two more, however if you are to do one, I'd recommend one of these two.

Also, I've seen a few tanks of this size house a mandarin successfully. They are well established and have been raising pods in them for years though. There can't be any other fish who will compete for pods.
