I have two small ponds one of which is in a half barrel with water lilies, it was lovely last year but had to clean it up this year, the other in a big plastic tub which also lovely but needed a pump, worked well when the sun was out but useless any other time, I had fish in this little pond but they succumed to cats and a rat, leaving the pond ransid so no more fish for me but I will continue with the water feature, for birds to drink from and insects and frogs can frequent.
