Black Background / Black Substrate?

Title says it all, I am getting ready to setup up a 55 gallon reef tank and I am trying to decide if it would look good with a background and black substrate?

Anyone have this combination, if so could you please post picks!

It was weird because just yesterday I was thinking what a black substrate with a black background would look like. You never know it might be way sweet. But if not I can picture black substrate with like a shiny blue background.

I'll have to look for it but I have read a thread where a guy did this exact thing. It is an interesting look.

I did not have the guts...

I ended up going white substrate, black background.

You would think a black substrate would be OK but I have had several folks say that it`s hard to keep a black substrate clean. Just what I`ve heard.
