Is this full sized or did you crop the picture?
The fins are cut of a bit on the top and bottom.

I used to shoot with a P10 and had a similar hue on most pics as well, but you can get some of the colours back PS.

I think your composition is just fine which is an important part but the lighting is lets face it horrid. It is all green kind of looks like the flash didn't go off at all. It is a limitation with the camera. Yzer yours kind of looks like it is in a field outside, a little to bright I think. Here is my version. I hit the autocolor, brightness contrast and blurred a tad in the front to separate the fish a little better and went over it with the sponge tool 20 seconds of time.

The sponge tool is a creative way to improve saturation ie bring out colors more in a selective area at a controlled intensity. To much and it will look noisy and very "digital" play with the toolbar setting and how long you hold the mouse down also controls intensity. I like to dab with the mouse.
