I dont think you can have too many plants, the chappie who wrote the book I am going by says 60% of the surface should be covered.

Maybe because it was tap water, it will take longer to clear. Mine is completely clear I can see right down to the bottom of the deep bit, maybe you just need more oxygenators, they will take up the nutriients.i

When I kept ducks they only had baby baths and those shell sand pits from the kids store.

If you are fit and able you can do it yourself for less than 20.00 per year, but if your not, then it is worth it.

Odd blooming time

Dont worry about, mine bloom  all year through. Cut of the dead flowers and they will go on. Chop the whole plant right back to the ground about May when they finish flowering, they will soon be up again.

I dead head as much as poss, been a bit difficult at the moment with family, but, yes, thats the way to keep them going. Once they produce seed they think their job is done and they will start to die. They like rough ground and not much feed because that will bring them up to quickly,
