I have black background in all my tanks. I have low light. My 55 gal, tank only has 2 lights that are 15 watts. I have a planted tank and the black ground makes the plants and fish the focal point in the tank. I have pool filter sand on the bottom of my 55 gal. tank . With a black backgound the fishes that are neon and have nice colors show up really nice. Also if you switch to blk. said some fish show up nicer then the white sand. All my other tanks have black sand. The albino bushy nosed pleco shows up really nice on the bottom. Neon tetras, glow-light tetras, harleqen rasboras, rainbow fish, boesmani rainbows, lighter colored angelfish , ghost fish, silver dollars and nicely colored liverbearer fish show up better against a black background and black sand. If you have colored dwarf shrimps the nicely colored red cherry shrimp, yellow, will become darker against the blk. background and black sand.
