What lights are u using on a 150gal

I'm getting ready to upgrade to a 150gal. Need help in selecting a lighting setup. I do know I wil be using blueline 250 watt ballast. Just don't know what type of reflectors to use. Since it will be in a canopy.
Anyone have suggestions or pics of there setup would be very helpful.

Looks sweet. But I'm not ready for the transition of LEDs yet. I'm still stuck on the MH still. What were you using before the LEDs and any pics

I had 3x150 MH on legs holding up the 6' long fixture. I did not have my canopy on and therefore had a log of light spill into the room. I do not recommend that setup.
