Too small for more than one Oscar.

Could do a nice Tanganyikan, African "rapids", Rainbowfish/Gudgeon or Central American theme in a 100g with hard alkaline water.

If you're on a budget, stay with freshwater fish. Setting up, keeping up, and stocking a saltwater tank will cost you $$$. I'd say go with cichlids. They're not too hard to take care of and your tank will be more than big enough, unless you go with oscars. In my experience with oscars, they get too big too quickly. I'd say start a tank with a bunch of colorful African cichlids. Just my opinion :)
