well ther eis a lot to consider with your plan. I really think you should fins out more about possible local predators: dogs, cats, raccoons, skunks, badgers etc...
also a 5 galon buckey will be way too small for six turtles in a large pond
maybe a 40 -50 galon rubbermaid storgae box inmore in order.
also i am confused about how you will use the liner at eye level. you do intend to dig a hole, right?
you should plan on digging a lower area (outside where the liner will be) for spill over when it rains and when you flood the pond purposefully with the hose to clean some of the water out.
the fencing around is a good idea but electrifying it might be good also
and do you live in the u.s.?
because if you do there is no way youare safe from winter
i live in phoenix now and even here it gets too cold for turtles sometimes, so does south florida and southern california and west texas, so you will need to plan for at least a few cold days
