Default 125g pond with river and waterfall...DIY project

Hi everybody ,
I started this project some month ago but didn't get the time to concentrate on it cause my house was in construction at the same time. The house is almost completed and i'll be able to put some of my time in this project.
It will be base on a natural concept with no filtration...plants will do this part....The only equipement will be a water pump which will carry the water up and gravity will help it down...
There will be 4 differents parts :
PART 1 : waterfall and may be a small pond...not yet decided...
PART 2 : A river!!!
PART 3 : A waterfall (2 metre high) will many plants.
PART 4 : A 125 gal pond (actual hosts : 3 tilapias and 1 big pleco - about 10 inches)
