  1. so im new to the tent scene. needless to say i bought a cheaper tent and im afraid when i put my lights in that the tent will cave in. it says it can hold 178 lbs, but im not sure the thin poles can stand up to that much weight. i have just a plain 2x4x5 tent. has aluminum or steel poles and corners. the poles for the heights arent even one peiece. i have to slide the top half into the bottom. 
    i was thinking of some kind of stand to put in there, or maybe somehtign to brace the height poles with. there also isnt much to sttach the lights to as far as the top of it goes. im getting 2 small leds to go side by side in there and dont want my lights dropping on my plants and breaking. 
    had i known anything about tents i would have spent the extra for a "box" type instead of the flimsier "tent" type
