    Experience. Personally I think you are going to have a hard time controlling the heat in that small of a tent with a 600 watt. You may get away with it b/c you have an inline fan but I think it will be tough.

    If you dim your light down you won't get the full benifit of the bulbs spectrum. You should have bought a 400 watt light IMO.

    To answer your question about what else you need is exhausting but here's a small list:

    Ducting, hanging chains, buckets, soil, seeds, fertilizer, small fans to blow over the canopy, a medium size oscillating fan on a timer, a timer for the light, an intake fan, shade 5 googles so you don't ruin your eyes, a book on how to grow marijuana, duct tape, ring worms, a temperature and hygrometer meter with beacon, drip pans, mason jars, a hygrometer for curing, extra bulbs so in case one bursts you'll have a back up immediately, etc.... Good luck. We all started somewhere.
    I'll share my first rookie mistake. Don't ever spray buds in flower, ever, you'll get mold/bud rot.

    first thing on your list should be insulated ducting from your local hardware store. Air cooled hood will only stay cool if your exhaust is set up and it will make a world of difference in the temps.
