You can hook up a regular fan and stick it into the tent. Make sure the back of the fan is pointed inside the tent. This will create a vacuum inside, creating not only more air circulation inside the tent, but will also bring more fresh air into the tent as well. As far as a mini A/C, i dont think ive seen one really small, if hey do have them, i would imagine they would cost a pretty penny!

Just an idea! :-D

ya... that's what I suggest too... but I'd also add that I'd point the fan so it's blowing air directly across your lights to cool them down as well. there is nothing u can do about heat produced by light radiation, but you can cool down the heating element warming the air in the tent. do you have any pictures that shows your setup?
