  1. terrarium = mainly terrestrial but maybe with a small water feature
  2. paludarium = combined terrestrial and water areas
  3. riparium = mainly water but with emergent aquatic plants above water usually supported with planters on rear pane of glass
  4. vivarium = terrarium set up specifically for care of animal(s)
