    I have a Palm Beach White Cap 161 and want to put an aerator in the livewell. The livewell has a pump to fill it but it is not automatic and has no air system. Basically on and off.

    I saw the one they sell at walmart and was thinking about it. Has anyone used their systems before? Are they ok?

    Im not a mechanic so for me to install this will not be a normal thing. I want to do it correctly. Thanks.

    This is the one I used, I had shrimp stay alived for dayssss. To control it I wired it to a on/off switch.

    What are you looking for in the long run?? The best system is good clean water from the outside (fresh or salt where ever your at) running constaint. Is the bait dying off??
