With all the variations with the lumen brights, lumen arcs, minis, 2s 3 etc....

Which one does everyone like the best?

Pick the reflector based on your needs. Post some info about your tank and you will get better responses.

Yeah , those nicer reflectors are designed to either spread the light wider or focus it deeper.
Here's a read on it so I would go by this:

I was about to post that link too. You can also do a search for sanjay's work for bulb ballast combinations to so you can get a great combination. I have a lumenarc 3 mini on my 40 breeder, but am switching to the LumenMax elite for my 150 sue to the deep dimensions.
