Discrete nano-reef filtation and heating?

I want to set up a 3gal nano reef tank (possible slightly larger, up to 10gal). I want the system to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible, namely by keeping any equipment out of sight. Could I just drill two holes in the tank, and use a powerful external canister filter, to filter the water and provide water movement? Or is a seperate powerhead necessary? In addition, is there an external way of heating the water, without the use of a sump? Thanks a lot.

I found a very small (live) worm in my cod dinner. This cod was line caught on Saturday in New Hampshire's Atlantic. It was given to me by the fisherman. It spent 3 days in the fridge. I had baked the fish for 13 minutes at 400 degrees. It was white and flakey. As I was eating (after I had eaten over half), I noticed a circular thing, about 1/2 cm in diameter, which looked odd. I poked at it with my fork where I noticed it was alive. It was very thin and about an inch long. Am I going to die? Is there anything to do? [more inside]
