A very good purchase This little aerator has worked out great. For me, it was definately worth buying instead of having to switch out the water in my bucket multiple times when fishing on the lake/off the dock to keep the minnows alive. September 22, 2012
Great aerator We used one of these in the great winter storm of 2011, power off for 7 days, but the fish tank had air thanks to this little pump. One battery lasted more than 30 hours. Bought another one for backup or we sometimes have 2 fish tanks. Never know when the power might go out ! July 26, 2012
Aerator I have used it numerous times and so far it has exceeded my expectations. I wasn't expecting much from a 10 buck aerator, but this thing has been great at keeping my shiners alive. Since shiners are almost 5 bucks a dozen, its been well worth the price. July 10, 2012
Great product The two speed option is great. It allows you to save batterie life by using the lower speed for smaller minnows such as bass or crappie minnows. I use the higher speed for bluegill and shad or chubs. I cant say how well made cause ive only used it twice but seem made well. June 6, 2012

A: 
It wil work fairly, but the issue with bags are water to fish ratio. The more and larger fish you have the more water is needed not only for O2 but also to keep a healthy slime layer on fish. I find using 2 bags and seperating the fish to work better. Thie gives more water per fish. keeping the water cool with a couple cubes of ice will help greatly also

I'm planning on using this for more of a livewell to keep the day's catch alive. If i had a good sized cooler and used this aerator could it keep a few fish alive for a couple hours? What if I used two of these?

I honestly think one would be fine. The higher speed puts out alot of bubbles and will last awhile on the D battery used. I would think it would be fine for this.

A: 
The more 02 you supply the water with the better. It will work just fine, as a bonus add a little ice and some O2 booster to the water. You should be able to enjoy your fresh catch just fine. Just keep in mind the more fish you add to a livewell the more water and space you will need. There must be enough space for O2 and water to keep the protective slim on the fish. The lack of the slime will kill the fish just a fast as no O2

This unit is very quiet. On the low setting you have to strain to hear it from 5+ feet away. Slightly louder on high setting but still very, very quiet compared to my old aerator that was another brand. If noise is your only concern then don't hesitate. Not only quiet but puts out abundant air for even very large minnow buckets. 20+ gallon size is what my bucket is.

A: 
It does make some noise, but not too much. It just makes a soft humming noise. I don't think it should spook the fish. If your worried about the vibration spooking the fish, maybe try setting it on a peice of foam or something to mask the vibration. Hope this was helpful.

If it is a big enough cooler for five bass then I'm pretty sure it would keep them alive. However, if you plan on keeping five bass in a cooler, it will have to be a very big cooler.

It has a low setting for smaller minnow buckets which works great on the size you are asking about. I also have a 20+ gallon size minnow bucket that the high setting works excellent on. It's a tough little aerator and won't harm your minnows. I fish almost daily through the ice with minnows in the winter and haven't lost one yet due to the aerator. Hope this helps.

A: 
Not sure the size of container you can use it on, but it works extremely well for the 5 gallon bucket size. If you want to go with something larger like a livewell, I would suggest getting a marine cooler and setting up a pump system in it. I believe this product is more geared toward baitfish, and not your average LMB.
