Default Overgrown orchids

Iíve been growing my orchids in a tank for about 3 years.i have mostly phals, but have a catt, brassavola, and my medusae in there. The chids are very happy and grow like crazy, and bloom regularly. The problem is that they are now overgrown and my Phal. Kaleidoscope leaves are now growing upwards. The flower stems grow sideways against the tanks wire mesh top. Theyíve always done this, because of the lid. They are automatically misted daily and the lights are on a timer. The misting nozzles are attached to the lid. Upgrading my tank is a dream, and will happen in the future, but not possible at this time. Any suggestions to accommodate my plants and keep them happy? Removing any of them from the tank is also not a possibility. I know that with their rate of growth they wonít be able to be maintained in this setup for much longer. Unfortunately, Iím at least a full year from being able to do any type of tank upgrade. Help!
