    fish tank/aquarium

    Hello everyone,
    I can't figure out the difference between the words fish tank and aquarium.The dictionary says they use fish tanks specially for tropical pet fish. Is it the only difference?

    There is no difference if we are talking about the glass boxes people keep fish in in their homes.
