Question about PC lighting

Possibly stupid electrical question...

I have a couple extra 65W PC ballasts laying around. Can I run 2x28w PC's with one of these ballasts?

Thanks!

The ballasts are JBJ electronic 55wx2. What I was thinking was I could run 2x28 on one ballast or 4x28 on both over my 12g nano or my 30g sump. This is a leftover ballast from when I retrofitted 2x250w MH in my JBJ 4x55w CF hood last year.

What's the worst that could happen? 8O
