Canister filter for 20 gallon

I am looking for a canister filter for my 20 gallon aquarium, there is one slight problem but the filter needs to be less then 12" (30cm) heigh as this is the only space I have. It can be as wide or as long.

I'm not sure you can get a canister under 12" tall, I have Cascade 500's which are for tanks up to 30 and I believe it's still one of the smaller ones but it's over 12". I would look around but I'm not sure. If you want an external filter and can't use a canister I would look into using a sump

ZooMed makes a few smaller canister filters.
