Welcome!
Do you have a macro setting on your camera? In most cameras, it looks like a little flower. Put your camera on that setting and get as close to the tank as you can. With my camera, I can almost touch the glass with the lens and I get pretty good pictures a lot of the time.

Yes I have tried the macro setting. It works great for the snail & frog, but like I said, the fish always come out quite blurry with it. The biggest problem with the macro is that my camera takes too long to focus & by the time it's done, the fish are long gone. Maybe my gf's camera will work better =)

Welcome to AA! This is a great place.

The only thing that helped me take great pics of my fish was investing in a digital SLR. Speed is really the culprit in catching fish movement. I know it can be done with a non-SLR, but it takes all kinds of tinkering with the settings.

If only I could afford a DSLR...
Unfortunately I am a poor college student. Well, I guess I can't say I'm poor since I have enough money to take care of a few fish...but...too poor for a nice camera =P
