How to design with black gravel?

Hey guys, new to the forums and not really sure where to post this but anyways.... I just got a new tank 20 gallons and I got some fine black gravel with it. Now I was just wondering some do's and dont's with black gravel. What looks better with black gravel a dark background or a light background. Also same question for the rocks would lighter or darker colors look better. I'm guessing with a light rock and dark background the rocks might take too much attention away from the fish. But with dark background and dark rocks i'm guessing the color of the fishes really pop out at you. Anyways, just let me know some of your personal experiences or pictures you've seen that were or were not appealing with the black gravel.

Hola Ruffryder ,

I use black gravel and a black ground with white objects. Does'nt really show in the pic, but makes everything really stand out.
