A good reference is

           Elmer, William B. 
           The optical design of reflectors
           3rd ed.
           Salem, MA : TLA Lighting Consultants, c1989

For normal aquarium hood with fluorescent tube, the 
shape of the optimal cross section of the reflector
(so called small reflector) is somewhat like the "M" 
logo of McDonalds.
