Hey everyone,

I'm curious what the difference between aquatic and aqueous is (if there is a difference?)?

Thank you Angel

They can sometimes mean the same,
but I'd use aqueous for something that contains water or is watery,
and aquatic for something that lives or grows or happens in water.


In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Yes, I would also think the same. When I was a student, I remember we had been taught about 'aqueous solutions' and not the 'aquatic solutions'. The creatures like frogs, fish, crocodiles etc. or plants like water hyacinth, water chestnut (I love it) are called aquatic.
