Was that photo you posted taken underwater? Looks like it had to of been.
No, it was taken through the glass. I have a 100MM F2.8 Macro lens. You can see that the rock which is just bairly behind the coral is blury. That's because I was really close to the coral, focusing at nearly the extent of this lens with the apture wide open. It makes for a very shallow depth of field which is why I was using manual focus at the time.

With glass you need to shoot straight through otherwise it distorts the image. Plus you need a macro lens to get this close.
