22" Refugium/sump

Hey guys,
Does anyone know if there is a company that makes a sump/refugium that is 22" long? Height and width are not much of a problem but I can only fit 22" in length.

Thanks for the link. They look good but they are still 24" long and I dont think a HOB style will do me any good for a 100 gallon tank.

Here is another question. Could I make one that is say, 22" long 18"wide and 16" tall. Or basically more of a square than a rectangle shape?

You can make one any shape you want, really. Just need to make sure you account for the large footprint items you'll have in there, namely a skimmer. Shape isn't really relevant (as long as you're able to have flow).
