I cannot guarentee that it will be fine, but in my experience with the aquarelles, the 40W ballast will run the 36w lamp without issue. Your ballasts may differ, but its a place to start.

do you use a 40w T12 ballast? or do you find a 40w T8 ballast?

In any case, the ballast should be more face value than capacity of a lamp.
