    I've got one. If your objective is to keep a bucket of crappie minnows alive it works great, with the main benefit being that it is completely silent. If you want to keep a bucket of larger baits alive, follow Keith's advice. Seriously, I'll use it if I just have 4-5 bluegill to keep alive,but for more than that it is inadequate, and a cheap bubble aerator will work better.

    I hate to knock a product in an open forum, but after watching the video at Cabelas above the display , I was sold. Got it home , put 5 dozen minnows in it, traveled to the lake and found half of my minnows dead. Tried it again with 10 bluegill in 5 gallons of water , and 7 of them died. So therefore I figured Id save you guys some time and money.
