12-Gallon Nano Cube

I'm getting ready to purchase a 6-month old 12-Gallon Nano Cube. The tank was formerly used for saltwater fish. My intent is to switch it over to a freshwater tank with live plants. Will this aquarium work or should I be looking at something else?

It will work, just give it a good clean with some bleach/vinegar/water solution and swap the media. DO NOT use soap/detergents!

Also, you may want to swap the light bulbs.
