What is a pleasant and easy yet good looking fish to take care of for a novice?

I got a fish from biology class today and then I realized the only thing I knew I had was the small amount of flake fish food the teacher gave me and the ziploc bag it was in. It wasn't a project or anything it was just to own a fish :) . Any who, I did some research after I put my small goldfish in a tall, somewhat wide clear glass vase.

I assumed the whole entirety of earth was full of some such molecule or another. I know air, oxegen, carbon monoxide...etc...What is space? How can something exsist in nothing? When I imagine a vacuum I imagine pressure. Force, something. Also, how can a rocket in space cause movement and the lack thereof?
