I really really hope that my build doesn't flood my house! So anymore suggestions on how I should do the liner?

Crate aquarium

Is this filter I made going to work for this build? It's just a bottle full of some random filter media I had and an airstone to create suction into the bottle. This is the instructional video I used.

It would be better if you hooked a power head up to it, but yeah. Itll work for a low bio load.

I don't have a power head but I'm only going to have one black Moore and possibly a oranda.

Another cheap and safe container would be a clean 55g drum

I liked the "ponds" made out of pots but that won't work for a black Moore. I love black moores! They have the best personalities!

Crate aquarium

What kind of drum? A metal one or plastic? I think that might be more expensive than the build.

Plastic. Check Craig's list, I get clean ones here for 15-20$

I heard moores prefer wide and shallow not deep and skinny that's my only concern.

IMO this is almost even better than the original plan I was going to go with! Would this work for a few fancies? I would not use this exact kit/product but I would get something like this from home-depot. First link:
