making of table top water fountain is not an easy job but u can get an idea of making it by following my steps.
you need:
1) m seal
2) 12v motor (used in tape recorders)
3) plastic round cap
4) plastic wheel (to fix in the fan)

well here m seal is a wax based gum u can mold the gum as u like. i masked a fan u can see in the pitcher below it is used in the pump

some more details on how you made the pump ? any reason you did not use a small aquarium pump instead of making it ? thinking of water and electricity not always the best combo esp with moving parts involved.
jarcher12...he is an Indian and innovation is in our genes....aquarium pump would have costed some thing but using a motor and putting a small fan inside a plastic cap of used balm bottle was good...

The 5 color Led is a great addition to the fountain it looks great. You should put the photo in step 3 in the Intro so that it appears in the thumbnail.
