The 1469 is a remarkably lightweight yet sturdy 6-gallon self-contained baitfish condo that keeps an environment of up to 10 quarts of water in perfect tune. A powerful and ultra-quiet built-into-the-lid air pump efficiently aerates bottom to top via a removable micro-bubbler diffuser. And the pump runs strong all day long, whether powered by only two D-call batteries while you're on the water, the 12-volt adaptor for transporting in your vehicle or vessel or by an optional 120-volt adaptor for storing minnows overnight (or days on end) in the garage. The Aqua-Life Bait Station comes lined with a heavy-duty removable insulated liner to keep water temperatures from those drastic rises and falls that can make minnows turn belly up. Its lid clamps tight to the bucket to keep splash-overs at bay, as well as the pump safe and secure in a waterproof compartment for years of service. The 1469 Aqua-Life Bait Station even sports an accessory hook for securing a minnow dipping net.
