Default Depends on the fish

I presently have 30 Illangi in a 90 gallon with a black background.When the fish are in the front of the tank their colors look really nice but when they go to the back wall they darken.I think its just a natural thing for them to try and blend into their environment to avoid predation.The black is great for hiding filtration but if I could do it again I would definately do blue for Illangi.

I agree I originally started off with black then started over with blue and I wasn't impressed. A few weeks ago during a boring day I scraped it all off and went back to black. The difference is unreal. My ilangi never looked better.

I definitely think that you have to have the right lighting and scape and that you do! it needs to be a bright tank other than the back ground.
