In regards to seeding - that's (I suddenly realize) a separate consideration. Seed all you want, but the sequence of values that follows is the primary concern (no?)

I can't see how pixel resolution on non-random behavior will change anything. It might increase the scope of returned values - but will not the found pixels still be clustered where the object are most often found?

Or, looking at this another way: fix locations in the tank and determine if the points are occupied or not. Still will be affected by the living creatures behavior such as feeding tending to more likely interrupt a measured point at the top by the food at certain times.

Any creature that has a behavior (for survival, breeding, etc.) will act in a manner to satisfy that behavior and destroy the randomness.

How do you remove the non-randomness of the (fishes) behavior from the measurements?
