Opinions on background color

I have a double sides background. Would black look better with convicts? With play sand? Or will blue look better? Your opinions are greatly appreciated

I painted the back of my tank black. Blue looks nice also, really depends on the look your going for, the type of fish and aqua scape and of course what you like! That's the bottoms like really. You have to be happy with it.

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.
