I agree with Wasserpest. Some of the decision is going to be based on what looks best to you. I currently have a mix of 10,000K and 8,000K lamps in my set up.

One option that might be more acceptable to your parents is an "above-ground" pond. This can be built by using retaining wall stones. Just form them in a circle and build it up about 4 layers high....
