Coraline is going to grow in the tank eventually. It is however going to be another thing that consumes calcium in your system.

I had blue at first and it was overpowering! (IMO) I flipped it to black and I like it much better, you notice everything in the tank more....not the wall. Now my coraline is starting to take off so I like that!

I have noticed that fish corals and plants stand out much better against a black background rather than blue. Blue does make for a nice "infinity" look but that's about it.

Still boils down to personal choice.
