Still very new at messing with the manual settings. Any tips or whatever welcome.
Your white balance is way off and the background is too distracting.
I'd say get you're aperture closer to higher numbers, possibly f.13, so more of your scene will be in focus.
As mentioned before, adjust your white balance, I'm sure your camera manual has an explanation about WB.
And lastly if your playing with lights, give something like this a shot.

oddly enough, tropical fish LOVE bananas! no joke.. they really do. .
If your lights you are using have a harsh yellow or orange glow change your setting in camera (white balance) to tungsten which is a rich blue. this will counteract with the yellow giving what should be the correct white balance.
What were the settings? What was the light source? Did you use a tripod?
The image just looks like a test shot so I won't comment on the composition.
