Guys,
Im setting up a new tank and im trying to figure out the best way to setup my lights... i have 4 VHO's and 2 250 Watt MH's 10k XM's... Currently the only reflector i have is the on that comes with the VHO's...and I kinda rigged something with the parabolic reflector that came with my MH.... Im trying to figure out the best way to fit everything in the canopy and get the most out of my lights. I would love to see some pics of what you guys have

3 DIY Lumenarc Mini's running 175w Iwasaki 15k, 2 x 160w VHO UVL SuperActinic. (ignore the 2 48" bulbs as they were only temporary)

Thats pretty awesome. I havent thought about doing it the way you are doing it... my vhos and mh's are pretty much level with each other, so any kinda reflectors kinda screwed me... but i like how you have your mh's shining through your vhos. how are you holding your vho's in place?

The VHO's are just sitting on a ledge I made with a strip of 1x2. I can slide them all the way to the back when working in the tank.
