Eclipse 2 hood and standard 20gal tank

I got a 20 gallon tank combo from walmart for use as a QT.
Of course, the filter and light are garbage (well, compared to my main tank setup anyhow I spose).
Since I decided to make this QT also a macro algae farm of sorts, I decided to upgrade the lights/filter.
The tank seems to be a standard 20gal (2ftx1ft).
I've seen the eclipse 2 hood on the web, and I assume it will fit, but everytime I see it referenced with a tank, they mention the tank is rounded.
Will a squared edge tank work with the eclipse? (and it fit properly so I don't get alot of evap).

Is it fairly quiet? The biowheel/'hood' that came with the walmart combo is noisy and fits poorly..

The tank is in the den, so I want it to look decent (also encourages me to maintain it properly instead of just at QT time), and be somewhat quiet.

Any advice is appreciated as usual.

sorry for the time difference but if you still want to know, a 20H(high) will fit..i have one and it is nice, fairly quiet but still some noise for the rushing water.
