newbie with more ?'s nano tank ?'s

ok so i gave back the free standard 10g= perma fog on glass.
so the 1st? should i go with a nano cube? i only have space for cube style tanks or tall 25g or 18g glass or acrylic. was considering a eclipse hood but did not see enough favorable feedback. i really like the idea of self-contained
hood/filter/light combos so i might get a nano cube 12g or 24g.

2nd ? will the nano cube be a good set-up to support some plants and fish?
3rd? do i have to buy nano bulbs for freshwater? or can i buy forum user
recommended other bulbs from a LFS?
4th? will i need to do more than bulb changes for a nano cube freshwater tank?
5th? are the nano tanks quiet-do the cooling fans shut off when the lights
are turned off?

thanks in adavance for the helpful feedback, this newb really appreicates it
much respect
regards
John

I have had no problems having a heavily planted 12 gallon Nanocube for nearly 2 years. They have a freshwater version which comes with two 24W bulbs, which has allowed me to grow just about anything I wanted to.

You can buy them online for $10 - $15 each. I change them once a year, though I could easily wait longer between changes.

Yes, fans are off when lights are off and quiet when running.
