Check this out Andrew.

If not I am sure if you PM Suleesia help will be forthcoming.

I think from what I know, but have never tried, to ensure the fish stay in a particular area, you insert a piece of extra glass in the tank to limit the area that the fish can swm in whilst you do the photography.

If you are using an SLR try using a lenshood to ensure that you don't get any reflections from the glass. If you don't have one or are using a compact camera then gently position your lens flat against the glass. Don't use flash even if the lighting is very poor. Increase your ISO instead.

if shooting brightl coloured fish try shooting under a specialised uv (think some types are called sunlight tubes) fish tank light , they`ll give the fishes colours a lovely booost , dont forget to take your uv filter off your lens!
