Without a large refugium a 30g tank with LR will not sustain a mandarin.

As for a bottom dwelling fish, look into the scooter blennies, much less picky on what they eat and very interesting critters.

Thats exactly right.

I would warn against the CBS also they are very territorial and most of the time dont get along well with other shrimp.

What do you think is a good amount of time?
Personally, never. A 30 gallon tank is not large enough to support the diet of a mandarin. I would sway from the this fish.
