If the fixture does not come with the reflectors then the bulbs would be more then likely, to close together to add individual relectors.

thincat is correct. it won't work that way. btw, you can hang that halide fixture i mentioned by building or purchasing the "candycane" shaped hangers. something like zero did on page 3 of his build thread-

If I use this hanging fixture would this hold a 36inch even tho this fixture is 100cm would the 36inch be long enough ?

i think a 36 inch fixture is your only option. the next step up is a 48". a 36 should light the tank fine.

do you mean will that hanging bracket hold a 36"? i don't know. i've never seen that hanging bracket before, but i'm sure the vendor or manufacturer would be able to answer that for you.
