Your tank just may be too small.
The above is a very bad idea all the way around, and I would be extremely surprised, if above tankmates lived but a few week's month's. The average person could expect a very high probability that the fish would be very short lived.(die of sickness from poor enviornment )
Seasoned aquarist's, as well as any book on the above mentioned fish would say as much.
OP is not wanting to know how to provide poor enviornment for their fish.
Do research the need's of the Oscar's either here, under our fish profiles,,, or nearly any other forum that cater's to large cichlids.
