Although closed grow spaces are viable, I doubt it can be pulled off with a tent; most setups I've seen that are like this use a dedicated grow room. You could try switcing the light on during the night, and keep 4 lights off period between 12 and 4 pm, that way you can skip the hotter part of the day. You could use an AC unit, but with all the power it will use, you would be better off using more light with no CO2, I mean what's the point on using a 600w AC? you would be better off setting up another tent or using 2 600 w bulbs. What you could try, is get an cooltube and exhaust only the bulb, that might work and you won't be exhausting the co2.
Another thing, although not part of your question, I feel I should point out that feeding a baby seedling at this point is a sure way to burn it to a crisp, specially since you are using soil. The only thing I would feed a seedling at this stage is calmag, and only if your tap water is below 0,2EC (100 PPM). Biobloom is for plants in the flowering stage - post stretch, PK 13/14 is for late flowering plants with fully formed buds in the fattening stage; no comment on bioheaven since I don't use it; Biogrow you can use after the plant use all the nutrietns on the soil. And since you are using 8 gal pots, I don't think you'll need to feed at all.

If you are supplementing the co2 in your grow room then plants can typically withstand higher air temperatures but I highly recommend you use an extraction fan to decrease the heat in your room if price is an issue I can help you locate a fan for a realitvly inexpensive cost. However if you are trying to go for stealth and believe the noise from a fan is going to be an issue then I would recommend you have the light on in the evening and air condition the room in which the tent is in. Also it would be a good idea in later development of growth to use a co2 tank to supplement the co2 instead of the co2 bags. Hope this helps and good luck on your grow!

Hi @SweetLeaf, well this is almost impossible, plants need fresh/new air continuously, and I don't see any efficient and permanent way to decrease your temperature other than a good airflow with proper intraction/extraction. Sorry for the bad news! You could try to put iced-bottles and make your fan blow straight to the lamp, but these methods won't allow you to target an optimal temperature. Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date and happy growing!
