Unfortunately, that isn't going to work in this situation. Those fish don't even have enough room to grow in a tank that size... you simply can't put those types of fish into smaller tanks and expect it to work long term. You could add double the amount of rock in there now, move it all around, and within the next month or 2, find you are right back to having these same issues. As these fish grow they get more aggressive, which means bigger fish... less space for them. Take a saucer plate from your kitchen, hold it up to the tank. Imagine 2 - 4 of these in your tank.... then tell me how they will find territory and not over pollute the tank, even with daily water changes. In 30 gallons, it just isn't possible, I'm sorry, but some things are beyond our control.
