I have tried to get the cyan/blue cast out ofg this picture with photoshop but have been unsuccessful. Any solutions to using an underpowered flash?

post the photo for a good answer ...

but i'd imagine the answer will be if you have it in a Raw format then you will be able to get a better result than just in photoshop.

give us a look and I am sure some people will have a play with it to see what can be done.

I can't see the photo either. Anyways, I usually change the blue curve under levels in Nikon Capture in the raw file. This can also be done the same way in photoshop.

Try going to Hue/Saturation in PS and then playing with Cyan in Hue.
Also, increase the red a little in curves

Don't take this bad, but I don't think this is a good example to work with. The fish itself is blue, and the reef in the background is too far to have been lit by any external light source, so would appear blue too, regardless of how powerful your strobe was...

Matt diver is right. P.S. can do wonders but you are better of getting a better pic. Even if lighted perfectly it still isn't worth the trouble. But if you must.... you can select the fish with the pen tool or magnetic lasso then play with the channel mixer or hue saturation and do whatever you want to the fish.
