hi ksaster2,
i used a canon G11 for those shots. point and shoot camera with some great manual overrides and a very good macro setting. actually the originals are much sharper but i drastically reduced the file size so i could post it.
the G11 has a nice big lens, allows a lot of light to get in thus taking very nice shots in low-light conditions
also, i have my tank sitting on a cabinet with a bit of a ledge so i can rest my camera to steady the picture.
you'll need to put the camera right up against the glass and sit there for a while until your fish are no longer spooked. then snap away as the swim by.

tank lights on, other lights in your home off, no flash, steady the camera, clean glass and patience

i also use a lumix fx-01, the lumix is a cheaper alternative to the G11/12 and takes great shots!
i always test out a cameras macro and no-flash shooting before i buy

hope this helps

Really great pictures Anthony, and the set up looks good, you should add the overall aquarium picture also. Thanks for sharing.
