Thinking of starting a mini reef

Ive been doing freshwater for a couple months now and Ive learned a ton! Now Im moving away to university and bringing my empty 25 gal tank with me... Ive done alittle of reading about reef tanks and I would love to get one going the problem is first it may be over my buget, and secondly too much time.

I was wonder if any experience mini reef aquarist could give me a ball park figure of what they would think I would spend setting this up and how much time per day I would need to spend to keep it going?

with the 29 gal tank I have more than enough filtration crummy lights which would need to be redone and a makeshift bubble style filter

I also have many sheels (don't know if they are useful) and alot of either crush coral or live sand... not sure

Thanks in advance - hutch
