MH Ballast

Where does everyone store their ballasts? I have a 48" 90 with a 29 gallon sump and have the ballasts next to the sump. I want to add a reservoir to hold water for the ATO. Don't think I want to stack the two ballasts on top of each other. Ideas?

I mount my ballasts on the walls of my tank stand with spacers behind them to keep the off the wood and increase air flow for maximum cooling.
