Some people simply don't use backgrounds. They are there for looks.

As bigbanker said, it's a personal thing really. No pro, no cons, just a cosmetic thing. Personally I always use them, I paint mine on....

Personal preference...

I've got a tank without one because of the location (on the breakfast bar); but, my other ones have black paint for the background.
