Default 10 Gallon Lighting Question

Hi All,

Been lurking for a while as I research and start setting up my first planted tank...

I've got a 10 gallon AGA aquarium and some driftwood soaking in a bucket that is almost good to go.

But I'm not real sure what to do about a lighting solution. I'd like to go LED but my quandary concerns a very inquisitive cat and so I really need a hood/cover. She behaves with my cichlid tank (mostly) when I'm around but when I'm gone I do not trust her.

I've browsed through the sticky, forums, and google and haven't found much other than the Marineland LED/hood but it looks like that might not be the best solution, even for low-light plants.

Should I look at a DIY jobbie and the Marineland double bright LED?
Should I look at just going fluorescent? If so any suggestions?

I'd appreciate any assistance and apologies if I missed a solution already in the forums!

Thanks!
