Fish are sensitive to their surroundings. Stress is the main, almost the only, cause of fish health problems and premature death. The environment inside the tank is key.
A plain dark-coloured background works both to calm the fish and show off their colours. Black is often used because it is basically "invisible" (provided it is not shiny), and black construction paper is the least expensive way to do this. Dark brown would also work, or dark gray. The focus should be the fish and plants in the aquarium, not the background. If you can first notice the background when you look into the aquarium, it is likely not suitable.
please i see you are very close minded . it may not be your thing and that is fine but my fish are not stressed at all. actually the aggression in the tank increases when i remove it. as for the background it does display the fish in a different way . u don't like it that is fine but it is only your opinion which is based on speculation not fact and it has nothing to do with the environment inside the tank. I am not afraid to be different i find you quote very funny
