a pair would be fine for life in a 30 g.It would be probably at least one year before they spawn.

grow out 4 of them and let them pair up naturally. The largest will generally be the male. It will take 3 years before they get close to max size 4" for female and 6" for male

If that stand is designed for a 30g then it will work as long as the dimensions are the same.
