Good lord, thats a bit of a size difference. In a 30g you could put quite a bit.

Some recommendations of different fish you could add:
Lyretail Killifish
5ish harlequin rasboras
Bristlenose pleco
Rummynose Tetras
Guppies
Mollies
Platys
Cory Cats

All are good fish and stocking them would really depend on what other fish you have.

As for the 500g... a blue whale maybe?

Easy to keep

Java fern(low light)

Anubias, any kind. (Low to medium light)

Java moss (low light)

Requires some work

Amazon sword (high light, recommended root tabs)

African water fern (medium light needs current)

Dwarf hair grass (high light fertilizers)

Water sprite (medium light fertilizers)

500 gallons will be alot to manage especially if you don't know what you are doing .

But my favorite fish are danios zebra danios ,longfin zebra danios, golden zebra danios, leopord danios . They are very active fish I have ADHD so they kind of embody me also I like my dwarf gourami alot more chill and so is my twin bar platy. And ghost shrimp are cool.

The salt costs on a 500g saltwater tank alone would be insane

You can do just about any kind of plant in a 30g, It's 100% dependent on what light source you have.

For example, on a standard 29g a dual t5ho light fixture should put you solidly at medium light level at your substrate. You could probably handle growing some high light plants as well with that fixture

For the 500 a south American biotope would be neat
