Terms ADA uses. 60 centemeter tank in the p style. You can have 60p, 60f, mini m, mini L, etc., etc.

The letter describes the shape (tall, shallow, long, square, etc.) while the number is the length.

bulb - fleshy layers of leaves at the base of a plant, called scales, massed in a roughly spherical shape. New leaves originate from the center of a bulb. Crinium is an example.
corm - dense stem tissue at the base of a plant where new leaves or stems originate, different from a bulb in that the scales are dead. Sagittaria forms corms.
crown - compressed stem tissue with short internodes from which leaves and flowers or flower stalks emerge. Some small swords have crowns.
stolon - horizontal stem that grows along the top of the substrate in submergent plants or close to the surface in floating plants. Forms nodes that sprout new plants. Nodes are typically widely spaced. Water lettuce forms stolons.
rhizome - a horizontal stem that lies just above the substrate or slightly below. Rhizomes are a type of stolon but they are usually comparatively thick and provide a means for storing nutrients. Nodes are typically rather closely spaced. Anubias is a common rhizome plant.
runner - a type of stolon, usually thin with widely spaced nodes. Valisneria and vesuvius sword are examples of runner plants.

Some of these are so similar, it's difficult to tell the difference, but some go up, some go sideways.
