Lol, how did I miss that?
And I didn't think of all that, but would it be a bad thing if Cash showed up? Or Elvis for that matter. Lol.

Needs some taller background plants, then you don't have to figure out a background color.

Just knowing Black's on black would disappear worse than they do already.
With a tank full of albinos or platinum's it would be striking.

True enough but with the candle burning over this tank it will barely grow algae. (which isn't a bad thing)

Krylon fusion blue would look nice! it's very bright so if that's not your thing than you can spray some layers of black on top of the blue to darken it up!

I"ll be making an effort on a background this spring and translucent blue sounds like a good idea if I can pull it off. Added crypt lucens in the back but with low light growth requires months. (I don't mind that )
Took three weeks to open this submerged flower.
