As a matter of experience (as a fellow college kid) I'd suggest you don't set it up there. If you can, try to set it up somewhere in front of a whilte wall without wodden bars running behind it. You can probably find a better place that lets you easily change the background situation, but also if you put it in a place in front of plain white wall, your overall day-to-day enjoyment will increase. For me, having the enjoyable overall mood of the aquarium is important in terms of how positive I am about it.

edit: also, I find the desk as a difficult place for photo-shoots.

Is the top shelf of your dex fixated to the desk itself? At my school, they are not and we can move the shelf to wherever we wish. While I have set up aquariums on the shelf (for many of the same reasons), I have found from experience, they have a nasty habit of being bumped into or leaned on by friends, sending your aquarium flying (along with having water spilt all over the computer). Ok, well that has not actually happened to me, but it's good to have a good sense of paranoia.

As a note, I myself am actually setting up a very small aquarium on said shelf. Very small though. 4" cube, < .27 gal
