I wish you all the best with the apollo ballast, I bought the same style kit about 2 months ago and had the ballast short out on me about 2 weeks in, they are very good at replacing them no questions asked but you still have to wait for it to arrive. The downside of mail order. Their ventech fans are pretty decent but were too loud for me I upgraded to some vortexes.

bmp420gti I find the fans to be to load too. I will by some new ones tonight. Security isn't an issue. But they are way loud.

I got the tent shortly after my first post. So, That's what I was doing, Putting this together. No complaints as of yet. Except for the fan.



Some Shots After setting up and getting another fedex delivery!!!! One more to go....Cant wait!!!

ganzas, Imm curious about the OG Kush too. I never grew it out before. Love the smoke though. We, till next time. Gonna go play with this stuff for awhile. Ill be back with some more photos!

Stay Safe, C2

the apollo tents are actually really really nice the zippers are smooth and they are well made. The vortex fans are longer but they are way quieter I checked youtube sound clips from a bunch of different fans, they are a little pricey but well worth it for the noise. Your new setup is looking good.

Hey, bmp420gti. Im super happy with the Apollo, Nice and dark. The fans I have though are annoying. But work good. I bought a new Hydrofram Vortex 6" 449 CFM, 1.2A, 136w

Last night on Amazon for $151.00 see how that is. Everything else is good so far. Waiting for the Vanilla Kush to get here, than it's on.

Temps got up a little last night, So I ran a piece of duct from my a/c vent into the tent to check the change. Of course a big difference, but not pleasing to the eye.



I'm not worried about security, I have the place to myself. But I do have OCD And Well, I dont mind the duct to the tent, If I keep it, I'll connect properly.

Temps are good, I fed small dose ff grow Big and Big Bloom PH 6.0 To the OGkush, They seem to like, Also had half dose CalMag.



I did mix in a bag of HappyFrog, With The FFOF, Thought, it might be to hot for the seedlings, but they seem to like it. Till next time... C2

For like 20 dollars more you can get the super quiet S line vortex fan which is a lot quieter than anything around. I run one with a fan speed controller and I barely hear it unless its running full throttle.

Your duct setup is good but remember it will only cool when the AC is on, ice packs are kind of ghetto but work to keep the temps down in a tent, a humidifier also can lower it a few degrees overall.

Yo Ill check into that fan.. I still have a few thousand budget left on this. im considering, keeping the ac as a fresh air intake. works great should i fan up on that a/c intake for boost? it blows strong now.
I just got this through Amazon for $199.97


Vortex S-Line Ultra Quiet Fan 8" 728 CFM


Double insulated wall to prevent condensation and reduce noise level
Integrated Backdraft Damper to prevent air leakage when the extractor is not operating
Mounting bracket designed for quick and easy installation
The motor is 100% speed controllable, highly efficient, has low power consumption, and is built with permanently lubricated ball bearings and thermal overload protection
Rubber gasket to ensure air tight and vibration-free duct connection

Be Here Tuesday. be better than the hydrofarm Vortex 6" 449 CFM?

The S line fans have a little less flow but are a lot quieter, that 8 inch fan is a big boy and is probably all you will need for your tent, heres a video comparing sound and flow of the S line https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvY0dvHSZnE
