    They look good. I like the third picture for its colors and blurred background.

    My favorite has to be the third photo. The only thing I thought to say is the contrast levels of the photos. The glass of the fish tank seems to leave a white haze on your photos. Was your camera lens right on the tank or was there a gap? Having it on the glass might have reduced the slight haze.
    I don't know if you like to edit your photos, so I took the liberty to adjust the third photo by adding some contrast to it which reduced the haze. Overall, nice shots of the fish in my opinion.

    Clean the exterior of the aquarium glass with distilled white vinegar (it's not toxic to aquatic life) before photographing. :)

    The spots are actually from small particulates in the water, and look obnoxious when the flash goes off. So i must have forgotten to clonestamp those out.

    I see. Some of the spots in the catfish photos look like spots on the exterior of the glass.

    Also, one way to remove so much floating particles in the tank is to add poly-fil (not the type that is flame retardant) to your filter. The poly fibers "polish" the water and remove them. When I had my freshwater planted tanks, I used this in my Eheim canister filters, and it never failed to keep the water almost crystal-clear.

    Have you heard of a guy that goes by AQUASUR (I believe that's the way it's spelled)? He's on one of the aquarium forums I frequent and also on a couple of the more popular aquarium forums. He has AMAZING aquarium photography, and he will answer questions on his method.

    He belongs to aquatic-photography.com i believe, and he is really good at fish photo's. Im still trying to get my lighting right. I do use poly-fill in me eheim 2215, but the substrate(flourite black) still hadnt fully settled (and the dust that comes with it).
