What kind of a camera do you have? I could help you get a good shot! Here's the basics, make sure inside & out of tank are super clean, algae & streak free. Make sure the room is dark, no reflections. Turn off your flash & get the camera as close to the tank as possible. Try every setting on your camera. Certain fish need high speed but that sometimes is lacking on exposure time for the amount of light. So also make sure your brightest lights are on. I'll bet on Auto you'll get pretty good shots. Try it!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Oh, I'm SURE it has great settings! Nikons are good! You probably even have a setting you can adjust for the temperature settings for the light! i.e. 6500k, etc. Try "action" then try the setting "S" or "SS" & keep speeding up the shutter or slowing down til you get a shot you like based on lightness/darkness. Probably 1/160 is good if I remember correctly for when the daylights are on on the tank.
