Sounds like heaven. What's their sizes? You don't want too big of a difference.

I gotta get a cinder block for the center and a rock for basking . for now theres a small rock on one of the ledges of the pond they can climb on (but not get out) but its too small lol

You will never get rid of all the algae, as long as your water is clear you shouldn't worry about it too much. I say embrace the natural ;)
As for snails, don't put them in there, they are gonna get eaten real fast.

I'm really glad to see you were finally able to put your turtles out there, I'm sure they are thrilled!
