Yes, but the stores' blue backgrounds are incorporated INSIDE the tank, so the light has no trouble illuminating the brilliance of the blue. The blue background, which would be laminated paper on the outside of my tank, appears more as a dark blue which imo limits the illusion of size (the refractive properties of water already make the tank look 1/3 smaller than it actually is, so adding what looks like a wall instead of depth is definitely not what I want. I was considering making a background of my own, possibly something that keeps up with the appearance of my tank, like driftwood, lots of green plants, etc.. My lfs carries themed backgrounds but nothing that tickles ME FANCY!
Also, sorry about no pics of the vampire shrimp. I just can't get him to come out, maybe he will sometime soon, hopefully tonight.
