oscar 30 g
can a oscar live its whole life in a 30g gallon tank with strong filtration

no way a 30 gal is not nearly enough space for an oscar to live out its life

There are other cool cichlids you can keep in a 30g easily, though. If you like fish with a bad attitude, you could easily keep a convict (or even a breeding pair of convicts) in a 30g tank. If you got a bigger tank, like a standard 55g tank, you could keep something like a Jack Dempsey or green terror in a tank that size for the duration of its life.
Oscars can grow up to 16" though, so it's best to have a 75+ gallon tank for them because anything smaller will be too narrow for the fish to turn around in.

I agree with batman- there are some really, really cool cichlids that would fit in a 30G. Personally, I'd recommend a dwarf pike. They're evil, but so interactive. My friend's starts pacing like a dog when he sees his bag of food come out and plays "fetch" with me when I throw his food in. He catches it wherever I throw it in the tank. Of course, he doesn't bring it back :P
He'll also eat out of my hand (although I'm very careful, they have sharp teeth) and even let me pet him if he's in a good mood (although I don't really recommend this as it's not good for their slime coat).
Oscars are a very popular fish, but there's lots of cool cichs that are less well known but just as cool looking and intelligent.

firemouths can also be housed in a 30 gallon.
I personally kept an oscar in a 55 gallon tall which wasnt nearly enough room (way back when i was like 9-10)
