Why not just line the box with thick plastic or pond liner?
I've found pond liner to be too slick for a tortoise swimming pool. Also, the black liner heats the water since the pools are only 5" to 10" deep.
If it were a box, I'd use liner or a shower curtain.

Zeropilot,

If you just lay down a layer of fiberglass cloth before you wet it out with the epoxy resin it will last years if you prepare the surface below it.

The cloth will also add grit for your tortoise when he's getting out of the pond

I'd added gravel to the resin in the past.
Next time I'm going to bust up the pools and start again from scratch.
As soon as my back will allow....which might be a while.
But I'm done with Flex Seal

Zeropilot,

Since you're already familiar with resin, use it as intended and put a layer or two of fiberglass cloth down and wet it out with the resin. The cloth is cheap and you can get it at any of the big box stores. If you make an outer frame you can even free form the pond with the cloth. Once the resin is cured it's solid and tortoise proof.
