    If you are wanting to mix carnivorous and non-carnivorous plants you are probably going to need to put some of them in pots as the soils will mix and what is good for one is bad for the other. As for there not being enough carnivorous plants available to fill it up, take a look at some of the forked leaf sundews, nepethes, pings that can easly be 4 inches across. Mix in some pigmy sundews in the front and one or two of the larger utrics and I think you could fill up that 30 gallons in no time. You can always add a "moat" or water section and grow a sub-affixed aquadic utric like U. gibba.

    Keeping the plants in pots is a good idea. You can hide them or bury them but it makes treating and taking care of the plants alot easier.

    Not quite sure what you mean on the 'cant find that many carnivorous plants for so much room' deal.. I could fill it with 1 Nepenthes. I do think you need to think carefully though about your growing temperature ranges and lighting levels etc so that you can make a list of plants that would be happy with their home. Then choose from your compiled list

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
