Definitely looks better with the black. Those backgrounds with designs tend to make people focus on it more than the fish/plants.

Thanks we'll keep it that way. The algae on the wall shows up now though. Nothing a razor can't take care of.

Fdsh5,

Did you paint the back black or use a black (tape on ) background? Im at that phase right now. LFS suggests to go with a black background (and I see why on yours) just wondering if I should paint it or place a black tape on behind it.

Just the tape on background. Eventually may paint it but have to make sure that is the color the wife wants.

I do like the Black for my vote and I think that will be the way my tank ends up. Thanks

Black. I have tried that plastic background and messed up so bad several times until I listened and painted one now that is the only way to go. It isn't that hard to take it off if you don't like it. Flat black works the best.
