Loach pond

I am planning to construct an indoor pond in my basement. It will be a semicircle with a radius of 6 feet and a depth of about 2.5 feet. I plan to keep large loaches, tinfoil barb, and bala sharks in there. I will use a halogen light to heat it along with several heaters. I hope to install a waterfall in the corner. Anyone see any major problems that I should address before beginning. Any guesses on how much water will evaporate on a daily basis? Will a dehumidifier prevent dampness in the rest of the basement?
