Talking New 30 gal

Super excited, but I have a lot of work to do for this new tank.
30 gal (actually 29 but whatever)
got some quickrete play sand as substrate
using granite pieces and rocks as decor
and got some pennywort for a floating plant, since I plan to transfer some of my cichlids in there.
Got everything for around $60 :D

Neither of those fish are suitable long term for a 30g tank,
A single Oscar alone needs a 75g tank and they do grow quick, it will outgrow the 30g tank very very quickly.
A single JD needs a 55g tank as well.

Unless you plan on upgrading again real soon then you have a problem...both will outgrow that tank quick.
