    Maybe this will give you some ideas.
    New Small Pond
    I just dry stacked blocks then filled the cells with concrete. One 3" BD going to a 100 gallon well mate tank for settlement, the 2500 gph pump to a sand/gravel filter then to waterfall. I would also include a small skimmer in your system. Bead filters are nice but you can build most of everything your self for much less.

    It's a DIY bakki.

    I bought 1" bioballs off eBay and put them in the gray crates you saw stacked on top of a 150 gallon stock tank. Here's a link to building the crates.
