Try purchasing a unique ceramic, glass or terra cotta planter. It can be as big as you'd like it to be. It would also be fun to paint or create a mosaic of your own on one. You can purchase bright colored rocks, or marbles, maybe even a few aquatic plants. Place them in the planter and nestle in water pump that you can purchase at the hardware store for relatively cheap. Then pour a few rocks or whatever gravel like material you chose, if you have plants be sure that they are anchored down by the gravel but still are high enough so that the foliage sticks out above the water line. You can stack up tiles in the bottom of the container to elevate the height of the plants. Then the final thing to to is to make sure that your tubing for the pump ( the end that pushes out the water ) is secured as you'd like it, it can be hidden under something or sticking straight out of the top. just make sure it is above the water line, and then just plug your pump in. This project is cheap and relatively quick. Good luck.
