$7XX is just the cam itself.

it's a prosumer camera. lets you play around with the settings. more control.

however, you won't need to purchase lenses.

you might want to opt for accesories such as slave flash units since these model comes with a hot shoe.
slave flash units have been discussed earlier on this thread.

Alternatevely, try the followings :

have as many tank lights as possible,
set your camera to Manual mode,
push up the ISO reading,
set the speed at 1/80 & F 5.6

However, don't expect the pix to be as sharp as compered to those shot taken with flash.
thanks Master amiidae. fantastic advice!

Technically yes for certain tank size. but you should try shooting with the built-in flash (if you have not done before) and see if you like the result.

Can't advise in details if you don't state the brand and model of your cam.

Not likely that you can do much since this is a fully AUTO cam. Your best bet is to increase the lighting or try to shoot under video mode and freeze the best frame.

Post a few shots (abt 800 pixel width) and see if there are other stuff that I can advise.
