I use cocofiber for my terrariums. Just lay down about 1 inch of gravel (for drainage) than cover it with some window screen then lay down your cocofiber. As for a pond, you could pretty much do any thing you wanted to as long as it is water tight and will not get stagnate. I'll post a pic of my water feature once I get all of the parts and assemble it.
