2-3 gallon tank kit?


What's everybody's favorite all-inclusive 2-3 gallon nano kit? By all-inclusive I mean it must have a hood and an internal filter. This is going on top of my dresser and I want it to look as contained as possible. It's going to be home to a couple Apple snails and a bunch of anubias... basically, a SUPER low-maintenance tank. I currently have a couple Aqueon MiniBows and had to retrofit one to fit a hang-on-back filter because the stock filter was placed directly under the light and was growing algae like crazy. So, have at it: any good kits out there that would be self-contained, quiet, and work well as a planted tank? Thanks everybody!

I recently bought the JBJ 3g picotope. The filter is a HOB but its small. The light fixtures is good for low light but you'll want to change out the bulb. The mini aqualights fit perfectly and you can pick between the 6700K and the 10000K.

Thanks everyone! I'm looking for a setup with a definite, sturdy lid though to keep a curious cat out of it. I think a 10 pound cat on top of a glass lid might spell disaster. Hoping not to spend a ton of money on this too since it's just for a couple apple snails. Has anyone had good experiences with the 3 gallon Marineland Eclipse?
