A really nice macro for the money is the 60mm. it's probably around $350, easy to walkaround with, great for portraits as well.

Will be looking into that and a tripod this week. When in manual, how do you enable flash?

There is a little flash button on the left hand side on the front of the camera with a little lighting bolt. Check the manual if you can't find it. You don't want to use on camera flash when tanking pics of your tank. The light from the flash will just bounce off of the tank and go back into your lens. You'll end up with a lot of white in the pictures.

Most people use speedlite flashes with somekind of wireless triggers. The flash will be lighting the tank from above.

off camera flash, you can get a pair of transmitter and receiver, and a light diffuser sort of setup for the flash.
place the flash on top of the fish tank, find the right angle and distance.

Macro is not necessary if you have a tripod and tele(zoom) lens, remember you can crop the picture, your camera is 18mp, take advantage of it.

always try manual mode, move the flash around, take some shots to find the right exposure, adjust the aperture and flash distance/angle(for DOF), use flash as exposure light source. The fish tank plant light can be on all time so you can see the objects(for focus) in your tank, but not for exposure light source.

lens is 180MM Tamron Macro. Actually took the picture at about 5ft away from the congo tetra, so it was a Tele lens instead of Macro when I took the picture.


crop
