 Hello  Folks,  
 
 Need  your  suggestion  for  a  indoor  Koi  pond  filter.
 
 Pond  size  is  5ft  *  4ft  *  1.5ft  (L*B*H)
 
 Pond  is  in  the  living  room  with  tiles  in  bottom  and  sides  with  wooden  finish.
 
 The  pond  is  ready  but  unfortunately  designed  poorly  without  adequate  plumbing  for  filtration  or  space  to  place  a  canister  or  sump.  The  only  plumbing  is  to  let  water  out  into  the  garden.  
 
 The  filter  needs  to  be  concealed  under  a  coffee  table  which  will  be  kept  close  to  the  pond  or  kept  submerged  and  cover  it  with  plants  in  the  pond  to  maintain  the  decor  of  the  living  room.   
 
 Options  i  have  thought  after  raking  my  brains  since  few  days  and  now  reaching  out  to  your  valuable  input  :   
 
 1.  A  DIY  top  filter  set  up  just  above  the  water  level  with  various  media,  water  to  be  pumped  into  a  rectangle  container  with  a  help  of  a  pump,  water  gets  filtered  and  fall  back  into  the  pond,  use  wave  maker  to  create  circulation  -  who  can  help  me  with  this  option.   
 
 2.  Place  a  powerful  canister  place  it  half  submerged  in  a  corner  of  the  pond  itself,  cover  it  with  lily  and  other  plants  if  not  place  it  just  outside  the  pond  under  a  coffee  table.  
 If  water  is  not  pumped  into  the  filter  due  to  absence  of  gravity  then  attach  a  pump  to  force  water  into  the  canister  -  Which  canister  do  you  suggest  in  this  case.  
 
 3.  Any  other  suggestion   -  cannot  drill  or  redo  the  plumbing  as  granite  \  marble  needs  to  be  broken  and  pond  is  in  first  floor.

 This  looks  good,  no  point  destroying  the  aesthetics  with  a  DIY  or   filter  in  the  pond.  Get  a  professional  pond  filter  and  hide  it  in  a  cabinet  Near  the  pond.You  will  just  have  a  couple  of  pipes  for  input  and  output  that  can  be  hidden  easily.  Add  a  wave  maker  for  circulation  if  its  necessary

 agree  and  you  can  also  introduce  some  stones  and  hide  the  filter  within.  Are  there  going  to  be  any  cover  on  top?
