What is the best fish to get?

my mom said if I can keep my room clean for 2 weeks I can get a fish

Get a beta, they stay small and are not dirty. In nature, betas live in small puddles of water. Goldfish get too big, are really messy, and are not meant to be kept in a bowl of water.

I kept one goldfish in a tank and did not have to clean it often as it was pretty well self-cleaning. They fight so being alone was healthy (best) for the fish.

In an aquarium with a filter, yes that's fine. The person before me said a bowl of water was a place for goldfish and that's simply not true. An aquarium makes it easier but it still requires some maintenance and gold fish are definitely not self-cleaning.

Goldfish are beautiful, come in many varieties, and are easy to care for. I really like Angelfish, but you need a slightly more complex setup for them, as they need a water heater.

A goldfish would be an excellent starter fish. They come in a wide variety. You can get a 10-gal starter tank kit at Walmart or Petsmart for about $40-$50

For a small tank look for guppies, tetras, mollies, or beta. For a medium tank you should look at cichlids, or barbs.... Cichlids are a very cool and color fish. You can buy them in any color you can ever think of. They can be priced anywhere from 1.00-100.00. They can be found in almost any pet store. Most grow between 3-6 inches, and some such as oscars can grow up to 12 inches. If you are looking for bigger fish that will often live longer you should look at oscars, Bala sharks, silver dollars, red belly pacu's, or tin foil barbs.

Beta, they're really pretty but must be alone. It ends really badly if they're together.
