You should set-up one for yourself at your dorm or apartment.
That really isn't an option, I am going to do dart frogs tho in my dorm.
Don't do this. If "the folks" are not into it at all, don't know anything about reef keeping and/or don't have much time for maintenance, this is going to be a disaster. It doesn't matter how self-contained and self-sustaining you design it to be. Trust me, I did exactly the same thing when I went away for college. (As did many others, and their stories are mostly tragic.)
Trust me, I have thought about this, and thats why I'm taking down my current system. Too much can go wrong. Its not that they won't maintain it, they will, or I wouldn't be doing it. I just want to make it so that nothing goes terribly wrong. I want to leave them with the best set up I can. My dad did FW fish when I was younger, SW won't be that big of a leap. Plus my lil sister is pretty psyched about it all too.
