Post examples, post exposure settings, and equipment.
Since you are shooting through glass, flash is probably a no-no. Have you tried using a polarizing filter to cut through the glare?
Should I ask if the glass is perfectly clean on both sides?

For aquarium shots, shooting at an angle works well for avoiding flash glare. Also pressing the lense to the glass. Cupping your hand around lense end to block glare works too, but if you're using flash be careful not to create a shadow.
