I would say the main difference is corals. I'm sure someone with more experience will have a better explanation.

FOWLR (Read Fish Only with Live Rock) means no corals. Most "Reef" tanks contain various types of corals.

I'd say almost all reef tanks start out as FOWLR since it's not recommened you attempt to keep corals until you have a mature, established tank (1 year). You can keep some of the zoos once your tank establishes (2-3 months) and you have decent lighting for them.
