Well... You don't want the fish to get lost in the tank, what is your decor? Gravel color, any green like fake plants. What type of scape is it? You could always so a nice aqua blue. If you have rocks, driftwood etc in the tank the convicts will be seen better with the blue background in my opinion. The scape will be natural and they can hide throughout your tank but the blue backing will make them pop when they're out and about.
Here's a pic of a convict tank with blue background.
Sorry for the window glare. This tank was out together today at a friends house.
