I'm curious as to how many Lumenarc III reflectors you'd need on a tank that's 8' long and 3' wide. I know 4 will fit, but if you put 4 over the tank would you lose alot of light through the sides of the tank? Would 3 be enough coverage from end to end without unlit sections?

Here are some "to scale" drawings with the 19.5" reflectors in the 3 and 4 configuration.
