Does your camera have a function where you can adjust the darkness (I don't know the technical term) but it should look something like "+/- 0" and you could switch it to "-1/3" or "-2/3" and you will get better color saturation.

One thing that you might want to try is different light levels in the room when you take the pictures I have found that the tank shows up better with the room dark

The technical term (had to look it up) for the function I mentioned above is "exposure compensation". I know that the sony dcr-trv19 has an "exposure" option on page 2 of the LCD menu, and since your model has more features, it's likely (I hope) yours does too.

I forgot to suggest changing the white balance. You can try the various settings (indoor, outdoor, etc.) and there might also be an option to show it a plain white surface (like paper) so that it can calibrate its color scheme, and maybe that will make the colors more true-to-life. Your tank looks great!
