This water lily is probably now 5 years old. The pond is fish-less. What % cover would other members stop at ?

If you don't WANT fish it doesnt matter what percent you go to. If you do want them, up to about 50% plant cover should be ok, but include oxygenating weed in that 50%

i'd be inclined to stop at 75% as you will still need some light into the water for any little critters. to obscure light completely could lead to other problems. i suggest you do some further reading into it to be sure
