I wouldn't mind making some of my money back as the fish I have are kind of expensive. I have mostly glo dannio's and glo tetra's. The tetra's were $9 a piece and the glo danio's were $6 a piece.
I move my fish to/from my dorm room throughout the year for breaks and stuff. They're just bettas though and have a 5 gallon and a 3 gallon, so it's not too difficult for me to move the whole setup.
I think that the bucket method could work though..
Walmart sells adapters to plug regular outlets into a car outlet. You could plug a heater in while you have the AC on to keep a stable temperature
