Go for an unfiltered 2.5 gallon tank. It will require more frequent water changes, but there will be no noise!
Something like this maybe:

I personally bought this kit
http://reviews.petsmart.com/4830/110...ws/reviews.htm

I think it cost $20 for the tank w/ filter and multicolor led lighting, then add in the cost of substrate, decor, and a heater. The filter is in-tank and is extremely quiet. I personally love it. If you can find one, they're nice.

I also hear people talking about Kritter Keepers which are fairly inexpensive, just look for an in-tank filter... they run quietly.

Honestly, from my experiance, tanks with inside filters produce just about NO noise as long as water does not run low....

And now that I think about it though.... my ten gallon kit tank ($30) which has an outside filter makes NO noise when its filled up to the top... I have girls in mine though so I keep it a bit low since they tend to jumo during feeding

My Red Sea Nano filter has been discontinued, but the current version of it is this one. It makes no noise when the water level is good. If the water level goes low, you can hear the water splish-splashing into the tank.

Depends on how much work you want to do- anything under 5 gallons will need 2 weekly water changes..
For filtered 1 50% water only and 1 50% substrate vacuuming per week.
For unfiltered 1 50% water only and 1 100% per week.

I go the cheap route for multiples until I can find more room to get them each big tanks-
Kritter Keepers
The medium is 1.75 gals, the large is 2.75 gallons.. safe to heat with 25 watt adjustable heaters, can use a desk lamp with a 40 watt bulb to light them (not many desk lamps go higher in watt size, the 40w won't heat up the water, nor melt the plastic). There is enough room to plant it decently with a cave.
