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
