Marine fishkeeping involves a very large initial outlay, and then much smaller running costs. As a student, usually it is the initial set-up that prohibits us from starting. 10 gallons can be done, but it is much much harder than say a 29 gallon or 55 gallon because there is so little stability. But spend a couple minutes pricing stuff out online, and as Atari suggested buy a book - they are worth their weight in gold several times over. An absolute must is this book The Conscientious Marine Aquarist - By Robert Fenner really really helpful!

But that is just one man's opinion!
