Trying to find (found) a 4" inline fan (DC 10 watt or less!)

I have added a 3' length of PVC to my subterranean pipe.  They make inline fans for boats that fit right over the pipe, but they draw a lot of amperage and move a lot of air.  I don't need much, but I am only finding cooling fans for computers that will require adaptation.  What can I use that is somewhere in the middle?

Update 11/12/12:  I meant to return to this post and let everyone know that I ended up getting a 4.75W fan at Radio Shack.  I wired it directly to a 5W solar panel and it is working beautifully.  Look at later posts for more details.
