Tetra Crescent or Eclipse?

Got some extra cash (thanks State of AK lol) and want to upgrade my tanks. I am looking at these two...

Tetra Crescent 3g

or

Marineland Eclipse 3g

Looking to stay around 3 gallon, because I only have a small footprint to work with. One on each nightstand.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Abby

I was going to get the eclipse 3 gallon, but I read lots of reviews and people said that it leaked and that there is no feeding hatch. And when you lift the hood water spills out because thats were the filter is.

I have the Marineland Eclipse 3g - it's true there is no feeding thing but even on my tank that there is one... I remove the lid anyhow to feed him better.

I don't have any problem with water spilling though since the filter isn't /attached/ to the lid. Just under it. Never had any leaking problems with it either since its Acrylic and a slid piece.

If you want live plants then the eclipse as the Tetra is only led lights.
