K from the bulbs to the substrate its about 16" and from bulbs to tank bottom as if it had no sub its about 19". The ballasts are cheap ones and there are no reflectors I do wanna put acrylic mirror so there's something there also upgrade the ballasts to a single ballast that will run both bulbs I know the transformers are no good for what I'm tring to do. My question is this what would I have to get for this to be concidered a high light tank? Thought the first question was clear enough. I know right now it's a low light the way it's set up. Here's pics of the light system.
