I think that guppies get a bad rap. They are the absolute easiest fish to care for--and they're extremely cheap. Oh, but they're so much fun! I could spend an entire afternoon watching them flash back and forth, play, and interact with each other (hey, no judging), because while they're a very simply fish, every so often you get one with a distinct personality. Sometimes it's a bully; sometimes it's a spaz; and sometimes it's the rare one that will follow your finger whenever you touch the aquarium.
Anyway, though they're not the heartiest or most exciting of fish, I would very highly recommend guppies as a first pet or for anyone who would like a low maintenance, highly entertaining pet.
