I know you know like everything about ponds, so I agree with you about the fountain thingy, but I am just dumb, os I need to ask a few questions.
How would I actually create a fountain?
I don't want it to be too difficult, is there any simple way to do it?
What would I need to buy?

Sorry for the probably silly questions, anything to do with technology just baffles me. :D

You would need a submersable pump and hose to conect the pump to the water fixture that you can buy at most hardware stores such as Home Depot or Lows. It soudn't be exspensive since you will need a very small pump and water fountain is what I would go with not a water fall.

Hope this helps.

by the way the last post was right It will be great for water quality plus great sound!!!

Thank you. I will look into it for the future, I'm going to start planting it up soon. The worst of the winter has passed, and I'm desperate to liven the tank up. :D
Thanks everyone for their help,

it also woulnt be so bad to add a filter, maybe an internal filter or something.

Maybe even one day you might see some small tadpoles swimming around

Thanks. What sort of internal filters don't need a power source on a lead?
I've had tadpoles before, and it was great. Around 10 - 15 survived into yound frogs. They then came out of the pond and lived in my mini rock garden for some time, and then, all at once, hopped off. They were around 4 or 5 months old at that time, so I was glad they had survived that time. I hope I get more later this year. :)

hmm im not sure, you could use an air powered spounge filter while using a battery powered air pump. Im sure you could find a battery powered filter somewhere.
