My ballast is designed to drive 4 bulbs, but if I only have 2 bulbs in, it still works. I just want to know if it's more energy efficient if I use 2 bulbs.

So you mean the reactor is 1/4 full by the time you want your co2 to be off (timed regulator/solenoid).

What pump/filter are you using?? How big is the water housing? What is your BPS??
