Add a dark background and the contrast may appeal to you.

I added a dark blue background using silk material. Thus next thing I am going to do is take some of the black sand out and cover it with river sand. I got the river sand, which is brown, at a landscaper co for $3.

Perhaps you can a light at an aquarium club in your area. That is what I did.

Another option for a light is Hanging T5HO as Hyzer did
