Use the macro setting on your camera, and a tripod if you have one.
Try to use the tank lights as the only light source. Room lights create wierd reflections and flash often washes out the fish.
Be patient - fish are very uncooperative subjects. They either go into deep hiding when they see the camera, or they fly around the tank like madmen expecting to be fed.
Be prepared to take dozens of pictures before getting one that is decent.
