Default Aquarium photos best method of taking

I have the Nikon 4500 with a cool pix light.
What is the best method to take photos close up as if I step back I get the flash and the photo will not penertate the water.
It Is a 5ft x18in x 18in tank

I've never done that type of photography myself, but I remember some questions about it in the last several months. I'd try out the search utility and see if you can't find those posts. I don't remember which forum, but if you searched for "fish" or Aquarium, I doubt you'd get any other hits.

I don't quite understand your question, especially about "cool pix light." If this light is the "internal flash," you cannot shoot directly to the tank. Thus, try to shoot from an angle. If you have an external flash, try to shoot the flash from the top of your tank.
