I'm just curious what people will recommend as an aerator. I'm in the market and will be aerating 3-10 gallons. Sardines, chovies, perch, and squid.

It's gotta be battery operated.

Thanks

I got one of these and it works great.

Keeps a bucket of chovies alive all day long.
They are a bit pricey but well worth the 30bux plus battery.

It floats in the bucket and doesn't foam out like regular bubblers. I'm quite satisfied with its performance.

Sofa king we Tod did,

Haha

Thanks a ton for the point in the right direction. That's definitely something new that looks like it'll work really nicely.

If nobody posts anything more impressive I've sold!

There's a bunch of cheapy South Bend ones at the Kmart here in Goleta. Dunno how long they'll last but they are like $7 each I think.

Ya, those south bend brand bubblers are complete garbage, they last like 2 or 3 trips and they fry.

I'm interested to see how those Mino Mizer things hold up in the salt. If it still works after regular usage at this time next season I might look into getting one. Most are made for fresh water.

Got mine last year in June and never rinsed it out/off once. The only problem was the tiny springs in the alligator clips on the ends of the wires stopped being springy. But with the 6volt lantern battery I just stuff the clip in the end of the springs on top of the battery.

Buy a cheapo, throw it inside of a plastic sandwich bag with one tiny hole to lace the hose out. Zip it up and it should keep the saltwater away.. Should last you a few seasons if not more.... Oh and remove battery when not in use....

I recently purchased this one. I have not used too often yet, but so far so good.


Read the item description for more information.

Whichever aerator you buy, coat the contacts, etc with WD40. It works great to keep the salt out. With wd40 my pump has lasted about 5 years. Without wd40, one season tops.
