Questions about "pond" for Boxies

I have EBT's and am in the process of renovating & enlarging their outdoor habitat. For their water, what I'd really like to do is make a small pond rather than put up with a water bowl that has to be emptied daily... Of course, depth is an issue, and what about filtration? When these guys were babies, and I kept them inside, I used an Eheim canister filter to keep their water clean: I made their water area deep enough for the filter, but had a false floor that was raised higher so they had shallow depth even though there was a large water volume (does that make sense?). Anyway, those guys kept me cleaning that filter!!

Back to my question: I would love some advice on how to pull this off. Most of what I've read about ponds in general is geared toward depth, which isn't what I need. Will simply moving the water with a pump help with the cleanliness issues?
