I've not seen any effects of the flash on the fish here, but the visual effects (reflections, over exposure, red eyes (eeebil fishies!!!), cloudyness etc) mean it's pointless to use the flash, just use ambient light from around the tank aswell as the tank lights...

^ Yep. You'll almost certainly get a better result if you do not use a flash. If your tank light isn't particularly bright, use a tripod (or just brace your camera on something steady) and use the longest exposure your fish will allow.
