Aquarium

-Natural
-Biotope
-El natural
Paludariums
Riparium
Terrarium
Vivarium

- Neglected just kidding (actually not really)
- Nano tanks

If you expand out to salt water you've got:
~Fish only
~Fish with live rock
~Reef

Is there a difference between Natural and El Natural?

You could have...
Plant only
Invertebrate only
Blackwater
Brackish
What I call Traditional or Standard - colored gravel, fake plants, plastic molded decor, standard lights filtration etc.

One set of off shoots would be low tech and high tech versions of all those already mentioned. For example low tech dutch and high tech dutch.

Hello Acro...


Didn't see "Terraphyte" on your list. It might come under Biotope or possibly Riparium. It's a tank that uses mainly land plants.

As many as you can imagine

This is known as the "Miamian" style:



Here's a better one from a club:



Plants are a no-no in a Miamian tank, everything must be artificial (sometimes, even the fish), tank shape should be "modern" (square is considered cheap), lighting must be neon, black light optional.
