Hello,

I have a 30 gallon tank. It has black sand and for deco has all natural rocks. The pH is 8.0 +/- .2
The water is extremely hard (although I have no proof as I don't have a test kit for that)

I already have 10 white cloud mountain minnows.

I'd really like to know if there are any hardwater bottom dwelling fish peaceful and small enough for the 30 gallon. I was thinking bristlenose pleco?

Not sure. I have a ph of 7.8, water nearly as hard as concrete (Good old San Diego tap) and my Albino Bristle does just fine. Others will have to chime in with other options. :)

Yah, there are alot of really cool bottom dwelling fish that I'd love to get, but they all like extremely soft water, khuli loaches are my favorites right now.
