All of Amano's tanks are a white background. most of those nature aquariums use that to give a look of distance.

I like those horrible taking-up-too-much-space 3d backgrounds :lol:. Never liked solid colour backgrounds, though in all fairness black or white backgrounds really look nice on proper aquascaped aquariums like the following

Background color varies with the set-up.
