You can but this Canon lens is not the best tool for this situation (on top of the tubes) regardless: :idea:
1. Most likely you'll need a flash (or two) so I don't believe IS will help here...
2. A polarizer will probably be required to get rid of the reflection from the glass tank - This filter will take away another 2-3 stops so I would go with a faster lens as well to judge the effect of that polarizer when you rotate it in dim light

Just received mine today, nice lens.* I used to do a lot of macro work with film, this should be much better, no more waiting for development. I prefer this lens to the 100mm as its much lighter, easy to use.You'll like it, very sharp.Denis

If you're going to use extension tubes w/ef-s lens, the tubes should be Canon.
