Best thing for a college student is a low maintenance, planted tank IMO
. A ten gal
tank, heater, HOB
filter, light, flourite, some driftwood, some anubias, java fern, and some nano galaxy rasboras. Maybe some red cherry shrimp or dwarf mexican crayfish as well. BUT, If you really want clowfish and want to go the saltwater route, you'll need at least a 30gal tank (I don't know how big your space is at college), sand, salt mix, live rock, a heater, a HOB
filter, and a light. You could maybe put a pair of clowns in there. I wouldn't bother with live corals unless you're up to the challenge. Both salt and fresh also need a good test kit to test the water. API is the one I use.
