Default Adding a water stream to my koi pond. Any ideas? Post 2

Distance of the stream will be 1.5m. The fall from the pipe to the water= 15cm. I thought the stream could be 30 cm wide.

I was considering removing all the rocks, except for the rocks on the sides to keep the natural look, and build a stream in stead

My questions:

1. I would like to add plants- should I have "side streams" and plant them in there or have small puddles or dams, plant them in the puddles, and let the water flow over them? Any ideas?.

2. The cement to use - normal cement mixture and painting with a butamen cover or Coprox in the cement mix? Or both? Or use a durable plastic?

This is how the stream will look like, but we will need an area for plants as I said above. I need guidance here.

This is a long post- I hope people respond!!
