i have the same bucket, and i don't use the aerator at all...they stay in the fridge for weeks at a time and do fine

the insulation keeps them from getting too cold, every time you go out, exchange the water from your bucket and put fresh lake water in it, they will stay alive until you use them up

I have one as well. I usually run it for an hour or so and then turn it off for several hours. Then run it again for a little while....you get the idea. It also depends on the minnows for me. If I have shiners in there, I am running it much more often. Otherwise, if its just chubs/crappie minnows, then they can go for a very long time. Also obviously depends on how many are in there as well.

Tip #1: rip off a 1" x 2" peice of cardboard and slide it in-between the contact points of the batteries when you are not using the bubbler for a while. Then they won't drain gradually and the little light that half the time never works won't drain it either.

Tip #2: Bring it inside and let it drain and dry out in a slop sink or something when you are not using it for longer periods of time. If you leave it outside empty, what little water is left in will freeze in the line/stone and it won't work right the next time. (Also the batteries won't be so cold.)
