You can buy a black plastic "barrel liner" and use it to hold the lotus
(which should be planted in a basket).  Some Garden stores have plastic
half barrels that would fill the same purpose.  These are small enough to
fit on a balcony or patio.  You'll want to use some oxygenating plants
under water as well as at least 2 goldfish (to eat mosquito larvae).  
You might also want some floating plants like water hyacinth or shell
flower.  The smaller the pond the more surface area should be covered to
prevent algae growth.
