Mine is a very deep blue. Still gives a good contrast for corals and fish.

I have gotten my first black Background and now I'll never go back to blue. It makes you pay attention to the things in the tank, not the background. The tank was just started in this pic, couldn't find a newer one.

So it seems like most people have done back.... two of my tanks are spray painted black. I was debating on navy for the 55g I will be putting up.
