Thanks for the help

A T5 reflector will not work, it is too narrow. AH Supply reflectors for bigger PC bulbs work very well. Check out my latest hood where I used a T8 bulb with AHS reflectors:

You can optimize the spread by adjusting the bulb position and bending the reflector wider or narrower.

Here is where you can buy those reflectors:

Not cheap at all, but a good solution if you want the most light from your T8s. looks really good..

but seems like a lot of work..

looks like it does the job though

I was looking for more of a reflectors like the t5's that clip onto the bulb
Can't complain about the AHS reflectors. They do a fantastic job!
