Replacing radiator questions

Have had a very small nagging leak from gasket of stock radiator, finally pulled the trigger and bought an all aluminum radiator to install.

I am not home for another month, and cant look, but how many hoses do I have going to the radiator? I am thinking of replacing all the hoses as I am replacing the radiator.

Also, is there a better/worse radiator fluid to use, or all they all pretty much the same? (Will likely use whatever is best, and add the Red Line "Water Wetter" to top it off)
