Tall Tank Setups

I'm curious to what the tallest tank anyone has/has worked on the lighting used and which plants did well.

I recently setup a 36" high tank with a hanging MH fixture (250watt). The actual total distance from light to the substrate is about 46" and I'm happy to say I'm growing Blyxa and other stems successfully.

My tallest tank was 25 inch tall 90g tank.

I've got 2x175w MH right above the glass, so the total distance is probably 28 inches or so above the substrate. I planted HC and it seems to be doing alright.
Hi Jeff,

My 45 tall is 24" high and I have an AH Supply 96 watt 6700K CF and my Blyxa, Echinodorus tenellus v. 'Tenellus', and stems all do really well.
