    Are the rasboras hardy fish? will they survive a four hour drive? I was planing on putting them in my big aquarium over long breaks.
    I wanted to set the tank up at home and plant it, then fill it with the water that I take from my 55 gallon when I do water changes. Wouldn't the old water help with getting it cycled quickly? Then lower the water level to keep it from sloshing out on the drive to school, set it up and fill it back up, and let it run for a while until I could get my fish.

    Bookshelf aquariums would fit perfectly in the room. I was leaning toward a hexagon shape so it wouldn't take up much desk space but long and skinny would be better.

    Make sure to educate yourself on the cycling process. You are going to need to transport your filter media that is cycled with you. All fish you buy are going to be able to survive 4hrs in a bag or bucket, that shouldnt be an issue.

    Used water is nothing but that... it doesnt aid fish. The cycling process is what aids fish.

    as sandz said the bacteria that cycles your tank is in your filter media, not in your water.
    if you are gonna take down the 55 gallon tank use the filter media from that and you have a cycled tank automatically
    i hear some people say, "i kept a goldfish in a bowl and it lived for a year."
    they don't know how lucky they were and all goldfish live at least 15 years in proper conditions.
    that is equal to saying my human lived in his closet for 5 years!

    If your looking for something unusual Triops could be neat. You'd have to re hatch some every few months though. If you do them I would check species regulations because I know a few species are illegal to keep in some parts of the world.

    As far as other options my vote is a beta in a heavily planted tank.
