Thoughts on this setup
what are your thoughts on this setup
I would like to build something along the lines of this
but was wondering about the stream wouldn't it go stagnant over time
so may need to add a pump to move the water
have a look and see what you think

You do have to add a pump or the stream cannot flow. It is also best to have a reservoir of water and to then use aquarium filtration i have found over the years as the animal tend to foul the water. Plants will usually place roots in the water which does help to filter it a small amount but they also drain the water, which is why a larger reservoir is handy.

It can be done, with some thought.
