no problem, 30'' sounds good, You can drill either top or bottom, however, if you drill bottom, you must make sure you have a tempered glass bottom, or else it may crack from pressure. (unless you got acrylic of course =D)

Personally i would drill from top. Ive seen people drill from bottom and keep the return/exit at about half way up so they can drain easily.
