    Kit lens is designed do be a low end all rounder lens i.e. can just about take almost anything. Of cos, nothing comes without limitations.

    don't let your lens limit what u want to take. shoot everything u want to. when u discover what u like and your lens can't give u the pictures, then get another lens.

    For close up.... macro lense. But I think your problem is shutter speed. Moving fish need a higher shutter speed inorder to take sharp photo.

    Thank you for the advice. I will check shutter speed. What macro lens (Canon) would you guys recommend for taking photos of moving fishes?

    Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

    if third party,
    Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro.

    there's a certain limit to how close you can go with the kit lens.. if not you can consider a close up filter as well, but results might not be as good.
