One of the most attractive details of the #10255 LEGO Creator Assembly Square, the largest LEGO Modular Building to date, is the tiered fountain at the center of the square between the buildings.
The fountain sits on a colorful tiled base and is built using only eight pieces; various sizes of white and translucent-light-blue dish elements and a few connecting parts. The white dishes represent the tiers of the fountain, while the translucent-blue dishes represent water. This is a simple yet effective way to create an attractive fountain.
While the translucent-blue dishes mimic the transparency and color of water quite nicely, they lack an important feature of fountains; movement. Fountains are appreciated for their playful water effects; splashing water that shoots upwards and then gushes over the sides. In 2017, when the #10255 LEGO Creator Assembly Square was released, there were no translucent elements to recreate this effect.
However, since then, a number of unique LEGO pieces were released that can make the Assembly Square fountain look so much more dynamic. Take a look at the two examples below by a LEGO fan who goes by the name LegoStar on YouTube.
The splashy pieces you see are recolored fire elements as well as energy effects that appear in a number of LEGO Super Heroes and LEGO Ninjago sets.

Ha! That’s a great way to use those pieces! Now I want to try this!
I really like the second one. Are those pieces are just wedged in between the dishes, or are they connected?
The piece seems to have a bar, so it might be connected through a grip, I guess…
The second one is fantastic. I’m going to have to steal that. Never seen it before.
