clean the glass, turn the flash off, try and set your camera to manual then set the aperture to the smallest number available, then set shutter speed to around 1/50 use a tripod or a pile of books, align the tank in the viewfinder then use the self portrait timer-this will eliminate camera shake, its hit and miss with the fish but these settings should start you off, experiment.

Well with my camera we have a feature where you can take pics of objects closer than 28 cm. but if you are able to press the button down halfway and let the camera auto focus the take the pic. it will also help if the fish like to move alot.

this is a macro feature. Its a close focusing system in the computer chip, most slr lenses have the ability to focus closley, but a dedicated macro lens will give great results, thats what i use to take photographs of oxygen bubbles and plant details.

I'm surprised it took so long for macro to be mentioned. It appears on your camera as a flower. Use it wehn you zoom in on anything, and it autofocuses and takes beautiful pictures.

You so cool.

i have a sport mode on my camera.
it doesn't use a flash and it snaps them very quickly.

works like a charm xD

For mine I have also found that using the background light setting is a good one also. You also have to get the macro right but it helps to make it a little less of a mess to play with.
