Yeah I got fish tanks and such it's just that I wanted to turn the shower into something else besides an open space you know? That's ok though I will just do something else

Not a bad idea...Check it out!

There are some great possibilities listed here. You aren't that far off in your idea. But maybe in a rental it could be an issue. The pond liner thing is do-able.

I don't know if this will link directly but you can cut and paste, if not.

SURFACE-MOUNT PONDS FOR SLIDER AND OTHER AQUATIC TURTLES

I would worry about legal problems. I would expect to be sued for damages if I built a pond out of a bathroom in my apartment. Even if nothing went wrong, theres probably something in the lease about renovating.

My gf looked up inside ponds last night, and there is some wicked cool looking stuff, and we might like building one but only when we own a home.

It all sounds good on paper but search in-wall tank damage and you'll find hundreds of complaints. Wood rotting, drywall sagging/bowing, etc. The same problems will happen with an in-house pond. Your dehumidifier will be running 24/7 to keep up.

He can't do that! They rent this space, they don't own it. I smell a lawsuit.
