Welcome to the forum!

You know, fish tanks are pretty shallow in terms of depth. Therefore, larger sensors unlike what is available under current Pentax line up may well be warranted. Having said that, some of Pentax cameras are known to front focus quite frequently, and this may work in your favor. So good luck!

A tripod will help a lot, that way you can stop your lens down a bit. Also, if you can darken your room or minimize glass reflection, that will help.
Of course, no flash.

Here's some from a big aquarium.
