Background change?

My wife wanted to change the background on her tank to all black. Now, she's not sure if she really likes it. Just taking a poll. The first picture is before the change and the second is the black. Let me(her) know what you think is better looking. Thanks.

I think the lighting looks a lot better in the first one because the room is darker so the tank has less reflections on it, but in any case I prefer the black background.

I will take a pic tonight when it's darker. Never thought of that part. Gotta compare apples to apples right?

Ohh I really like the black!
The fish's colors stand out much more, and the plants/decor pop out. (IMO..)
I think the black looks grrreat!

Here is the black with similar lighting but it appears it's a winner already. Thanks for the help!
