HELPPPPPP!! Blue Pics

I just bought a Panasonic DMC-ZS50, and all I get is blue pictures of my tank. The Lights for the tank are the OceanRevive LED's.

Could some one please let me know how I can get some normal pics.

is there a DIY method for a yellow filter, like a piece of cellophane or something similar?

nice start.
Try no to take any shots at under 1/125 or get a small tripod and use a timed release. You will get sharper pictures that way. Also play around with exposure control and take a few of the same shots under exposing 1/2 F-stop (think your camera should be able to do that).
