Black makes it too dark in my opinion.. I like the blue background. Algae cover is not too appealing in my opinion either

I have had both and like the blue it gives it more depth IMHHO
You can use a temp background to see what you like better cause once it is painted its painted for all intese purpouses

How about painting an ocean reef backround. Sand, rocks, corals, fish, and blue in the upper areas
