Aerating water

I purchased two 35 gallon Rubbermaid containers; one for RO/DI water storage, and the other for mixed saltwater storage. My question is this: Do I need a powerhead in both of these containers, or only for the saltwater container?

Currently under construction:
90 Gallon SWFOWLR
Marineland Sedona stand and canopy
80 pounds of aragonite sand, 20 pounds live sand
MagDrive 7 pump
SeaLife protein skimmer
VisiTherm 250Watt heater

List of possible fish:
2 Ocellaris Clownfish
1 Royal Gramma Basslet
3 Neon Blue Gobies
1 Yellow Eye Tang
Several Blue Reef Chromis

Only the SW container.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Yeah, I'm with lando on this. Unless you want to keep your RODI water sitting in there for weeks .
