I have used candle wax in the past. You can also make neat bullet and explosion effects in it since it is workable when warm

Any of the model railroad fake water products you use, research them, first. Some will find their way out of even the smallest gaps, and others are known to creep their way up the scenery before they cure.
Depending on what you're doing, one old model railroad trick, is to paint a flat surface to look like kind of murky water. Paint it black or dark brown over the deeper section, then fade it to your underlieing scenery base color towards the shallows. Once the paint is dry, you cover the whole thing with gloss medium. Gloss medium is kind of thick (like white glue) so you can create surface ripples fairly easily.
Water fall effects can be created with clear caulking, and white water can be made with layers of gloss medium and white drybrushing.
To fake deeper clear water, you can also build your stream/lake bed up to the water line, cover it with clear plastic or glass, then continue the scenery on up past the water's surface. Gloss medium can be used again here, to suggest a more realistic water surface, and help stop the glass floor look.

You could also go to Wal-Mart. They have clear acrylic water in the arts and craft section. I have a friend of mine that used to use this stuff for his Warhammer 40k terrains.

Didn't read through all the posts (so don't know if someone covered this) but for my table displays, I used white plastic tables and covered them with blue transparent wrap from Michaels. Works well and is semi reflective. Blue sand is also a cool option.
