1830, noun utilization of neuter of Latin aquarius "pertaining to water," as a noun, "water-carrier," genitive of aqua "water" (see aqua-). The term existed in Latin, but indeed there it designed "drinking place for cattle." Originally particularly for growing aquatic flowers; an early on effort at a name for "fish tank" ended up being marine vivarium.
