equipped models, but I don't want to use UV
sterilization. The purpose of the "regular" light is mostly to protect the electronic ballast. (If it's reactive, I may leave the socket empty) An empty socket/wasted bulb is the fastest way to destroy an electronic ballast.

By 60x, are you referring to the 603 I posted a picture of? Because the pump for that is on the outflow side, after the waters run through the filter.
I've removed the bulb on one of my 304s and it's not had any impact thus far (couple years now). Not to argue with what you said - you know more about that ballast stuff than I do for sure.
