This is very true. I have a solid black background for my 55G Cichlid tank and it's very tough to spot any algae, only con I can think about is that you may need to "find" the algae, then clean it. I have a solid blue on my 55G Salt. you just need to wipe the back every other week or so to get rid of the algae in the back, other than that, fish look very nice with a blue background.
