One can note that with Eclipse hoods, where the light is
biased to the front, that's where the plants grow best and
where the plants that can develop reach lean.

Surely it depends on the reflector and how it "focuses" the
light. Perhaps for diff tank setups the area of highest
light differs. Given the angle of incidence and reflection,
it can't be the bottom in all tank setups, can it?
