Default Qustions on new small container pond

So I have been wanting to start a small pond for quite a while. Nothing too big. Maybe something made from a large flower pot or one of those prefab ponds from the hardware store. For fish I was thinking of something like guppies or platties. Easy. Would I need some sort of filter? Obviously I would load it with plants too. What about when it gets hot in the summer and cold in the winter? How would I care for them? Looking for something that I could just top off the water every now and then.
