Digital Pics

Hey guys,
I have this camera:
http://www.sonystyle.ca/commerce/ser...ductId=1002542

And it takes amazing shots. But i just can't get it to take good ones under water.
they always come out fuzzy no matter what focus settings i use.

ANy suggestions on settings i should set?
I know to just take a lot of shots and some should be good, but i'd like to bump up the average.

The best shots are when i use the sport mode which increases the Iso for fast moving images. But still al ot of them are fuzzy.

only really clear when the fish are at the very front of the tank.

I was going to say that the sports mode helped me out. I also learned that for me my best pics are without a flash.

Yeah the flash just seems to slow things down.
I'll try it on manual and mess around with a few settings.
