I had something very similar in both my boxie garden and my Redfoot enclosure. I had a stream leading into the pond, with the pump buried basically the same way. Something happened to the pump in the tortoise garden, and I had a mess trying to fix it. Now I changed it and have no filtration in either garden. For the Box Turtle garden, I have a small pond that holds 30 gal. I added enough river rocks in different sizes so that there is a slop that they can walk in and out of the pond easily. I put some pond plant in there and will add more plants soon as the weather gets warmer. The plants keep the pond pretty clean, and if I want to change the water I just put the hose in there and let trickle until the pond is clean. The overflow of water which is dirty feeds the plants. This has worked great for me with no maintenance, and problems. I did the same thing in the tortoise garden.
