have you tried contacting the site you purcahed them from and seeing if they will allow you to trade the item for the correct size? I think I would try that first before trying to come up with a way to make them "Fit"

I would at least ask the seller. Sometimes they dont list everything they carry on Ebay (or wherever you may have bought it).

They may even be able to order something to fit your tank that they don't usually stock.

Maybe not on there sight but this may help if you still want a mh combo fixture. Just the price is a little more than the other one.

They carry a few different 36 combos. This may be what your looking for or may not be but good luck.

Hey how set are you in your ways on using MH lighting? They posted this link in the the T-5 light thred on this sight. Maybe worth checking out. I know I'm starting to rethink what lights I am going to use on my next tank.
