Waterfall help needed


Hi,
I'm making a sort of "beach" landscaping project around our hot tub.

I'd like to have a small waterfall there. I can't really envision what type of waterfall setup would look best.
Haven't seen too many rocks/waterfalls when I've been to the Florida beaches. At this point I'm thinking I'd like to maybe create something out of glass blocks and let the water run down over them. some turned vertically, some horizontally...etc.to get a waterfall effect.
Not sure, just thinking outside of the box.
Anybody ever done anything like that?
If not, or haven't seen a glass block waterfall, in order to keep with the beach project, what would you suggest?
There will be a sandy area, pampas grass, some large shells, maybe, gulp..a pink flamingo (I know it's a lil over the top, but we like em..just 1) surronding the waterfall..

Waterfall help needed


I think as I look at this, I would like to know the basics of waterfalls...
What is needed/required?
basin
pump and tubing
electricity
something to have water fall off of...
what else?
Is that how it goes? What else is needed....

I'm seeing the block wall thing sit in some sort of basin, tiles laid on the bottom and an underwater blue light shining up thru it all.

How do you keep that sorta setup algae free???
Bleach?
