I was thinking about getting a pet for myself and my children. My children are 3.5 years and 22 months. We already have 2 ancient cats. The pets I was considering were a Guinea Pig and a fish. The fish I was considering was eithe a gold fish or a Betta(Siamese fighting ) fish.
My questions are would Guinea Pigs make good pets for my household right now. I know you have to have two. Which fish is better to have? I would probably only have one, unless goldfish are social animals and need "friends". I know Bettas are NOT social.

Bettas are friendly pets, i use to play games with mine. Bettas are very social, just not when it comes to sharing a mate.
My bettas lived happily with tons of Tetras and Guppies with no problem what so ever.check out these game ideas! http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=29822
