Welcome to SW
For a 30g, I would do 5-6 small fish, max. And that's if you're very good about doing PWCs every week. Parameters in a 30 can get out of whack quickly.
Mandarins eat only pods
unless they are trained to eat other food, so wait until your tank has lots and lots of pods
before getting it, and then still only if you're going to have refugium for the pods
to reproduce in.
Love my skunk cleaner!!
If you're getting an anemone, wait a little while until your water parameters are stable. And you're goin to need very good lighting or it'll die.
Good luck with the tank!!
