    Default Portable aerators?

    Hey, all. I found a legal source of game fish for my pond (bluegills, perch, bass). It's about an eight hour drive away; probably a couple dozen 3-4" fish. I'm guessing multiple buckets and portable aerators will be the best way to go. Anybody ever use these? I'll probably only be using these once, so I don't want to spend a ton of money. Recommendations?

    This isn't the 3 pack I bought, but it's not a bad price, 3 for $13

    If I'm not mistaken, it was @Rocksor who gave me the link to the ones I bought...want to say they were less than $10

    Would those be powerful enough to aerate 5 gallon buckets?

    I would think so, one reviewer ran 3 of them on his 220G tank for eight hours, and his fish did fine

    Way more than enough. I was able to keep a slightly overstocked 110g tank with 2 of those for 10 hours, and no rapid breathing from the fish.

    I used those 2 of the Azoo pumps during a 2 day power outage, one in a 40B and one in a 25g. From time to time I move them for a while to my two 20g tanks. Plenty of aeration, but NOISY, NOISY. So just crank up the car radio on the way home.
