The better the camera the better the pictures, if you have a simple point and shoot camera the lense may not be fast enough to shoot without a blur, if you use your flash be sure to shoot on an angle and not straight on, so you won't get the bounce flash in the photo.

The macro setting seemed to work better on my camera. When I used to sell on www.aquabid.com I needed a lot of pics of different fish. So I'd use a photo tank, in order to standardise conditions. There are glares from the glass, and from the water (sometimes) so I'd take pics from different angles. If the fish are active swimmers you can use a pane of glass to minimise thier swimming area. With my camera it was easier to move closer and further away in order to focus. The camera didn't autofocus very well. There was also about a 2 second delay for my camera to shoot the pic...so the fish move. Basically I'd take about 100 pics to get 3 or 4 descent ones. So I have absolutely NO talent for taking pics. But maybe one of those tips will help you.

Put as much light as you can over the tank. Turn off the room lights. If you have an on board flash turn it off it will reflect off the glass.
