are you using the S6100 nikon.fuzzy pics could be caused by shaky unsteady hands or it's out of focus. see if there's auto focus on the camera set it to on.as for flash use the turn off flash setting.it should be in the settings area.all camera lenses have different light ranges of with it can take pic.too near and the pic becomes fuzzy out of focus at times.

try taking pics in a brighter setting.try sitting further away from the tank then use crop to crop out the unwanted stuff in the pic. don't use night settings as the flash will go off automatically. i don't know if you have ca setting on your camera it.i use it for night shot sometimes.
