It's not a macro . It's a pentax 18-40mm a wide angle zoom I would call it. When I crop the photos down they look like a macro shot.
I do have some macro filters that screw on the front of the lens. I don't use them much. The wide angle lens lets you get physically close to the subject. That's what I did in the last shot. He was right up at the front of the tank.
You say you get burly photos. What kind of light are you using? Always make sure your subject is in focus before you fit the button. Fish move a lot so I like to shoot with extra light and fast shutter speed with an ISO as low as I can get.
