Frabil Min-O2-Life Buckets

12 posts in this topic

Will these aerated buckets keep water and minnows from freezing in my garage?? Gets to around 15-20 degrees in there, and in a regular styrofoam bucket it gets a 1 inch or so skim on the top. I would think the water being aerated would prevent this?

I doubt it.I keep my minnows in a 5 gallon bucket with a double pump and they will freeze up in january in the garage.

Depnds on how cold it is but I usually keep my minnows aerated in the basement otherwise when its cold the cold air going in seems to freeze it faster

I keep mine in my entry way of the house, and change out the water every other day and also add snow. Make sure not to change all the water at one time, the temperature shock will kill all the minnows. This also will keep a dog entertained for a while.

If you decide to, LMK. We are going up on friday, me, dad and our cousin Duane Schultz from Fairmont. I have a mini van, so plenty of room.

I used to use a cheap aquarium heater in conjunction with an aerator when I had an unheated garage.

Aerator helps slow down the freezing, but if it gets cold enought it won't stop it.

I wonder, in a cooler with a blanket? Maybe that will do it?

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
