I am building a new canopy and getting close to the finish line. I have always used VHO bulbs and mounting them was a no brainer.
When you mount a reflector like the Reef Optix 2(13" long), do you mount the reflector x amount of inches from the side or do you go by the bulb instead and have equal thirds between the bulbs/sides. I plan to mount (2) Reef Optix reflectors in a 48" wide tank(90 gal)

I'm sure someone has a formula
but I mounted mine a few different ways to get the best bang

that said
I would look at the tank as 2 24" sides
and mount in the center of the 24"

there is a whole debate over perpendicular vrs. parralel to the front
