Planning nano cube - suggestions needed

I am planning to set up one of those glass cube vases as a nano tank. I want a 6" (1 gal) or 8" (2 gal) cube. I prefer the 2 gallon, but can't find any local sources for it. Could someone suggest a relatively cheap source for an 8" glass cube?

For the light, I am planning on using a 13W spiral CF bulb. I can just put it in a table lamp but I've seen pics of clip-on stands with goosenecks that look quite nice. Any source for these would be appreciated. I am going for high light, CO2 and dry ferts with this tank.

Finally, I'd appreciate suggestions for relatively fast growing plants (and small) that grow beyond the water surface and preferably, flower on the surface. Any stem plants that fit the category?

Thanks for your suggestions in advance,
Anupam
