you can get egg crate from your home depot or lowes, i usually find it in the lighting section, and that should do the trick.

otherwise, you can get the fiber/mesh screening used to fix stormdoors and such at any hardware store and staple that around a simple rectangle made out of wood.

i would run them on a sunrise sunset schedule increasing the amount of 50/50 and 10K a little bit (10 min ) every week until you get to the rate and photoperiod you are looking for. allow the brightest bulbs to run for a few hours in the middle of the day to simulate high noon on the reeef.
as said before keep an eye on every thing and watch for any heat problems too with 2x the lighting. heat can cause as much or more damage than lights too.
