How to pick a background color to bring out fish colors?
 
Anyone have any recommendations on a color of a background for GSPs?

I like black.. I use matte black for all my tanks.

Black is my favorite also. It's very dramatic and really makes colors pop. A deep, dark blue is also nice.

I also Love a black background. I use that on both of my tanks. One of them has dwarf puffers in it and it helps bring out the colors on those little guys.

i like a black backdrop against bright colored fish. also black gravel makes the colors pop even more. if you dont like the dark look a light blue also looks nice

i always tape my tanks off then use black spray paint on the back glass.

As others have said black background is a popular choice. It helps to make the fish pop, along with plants, live or fake.

It depends on the colours of fish you got, am using a deep blue colour in the background

Yeah I was looking to make my GSPs color pop and found they need light substrate and a bright blue background to get the yellow to come out. Previously I had the black substrate and it made them look brown and gloomy.
