Yup. The 22" I'm not positive about but I think that's what it is.

I've read it in a lot of places.... Apparently it absorbs water when wet for long periods and expands a little.

Also the extra heat from the water makes it expand since most tanks are kept at 80 degrees rather than the cooler temps in the stores.
