About 200 shots and I had to give up. I was getting frustrated. The best of the worst.

Been messing around some more and no luck as to getting a shot without that red eye. I ran out of darkness and can't keep the reflections off the tank glass. I'll keep trying tonight.
I think I'm sitting too far away. I tried not using the zoom, then cropping on the computer. The flash sort of stops the fish but when you magnify it, there's a ghost image outline on them. I found out how to turn the flash intensity down but I still get red eye.

Beautiful fish! Just keep playing with the camera, you'll get better and better.

The only way to get rid of redeye is to physically separate the flash from the camera. I assume it's a built in flash so it's impractical to do that.
With people, the rule of thumb is to separate the flash from the lens by 1 inch for every foot of distance to the subject. So if you are 5 ft from the subject, the flash needs to be 5 inches away from the lens to prevent redeye.
I dont know if fish eyes work the same way. They may reflect light over a wider angle than human eyes do and thus may require even greater separation.

I'm going to chalk it up to my being a south paw and the trigger being on the right-hand side of the camera...:11:
