For a nice 'fun' tank for some one who really isn't into aquascaping I this it would work. But for a nice planted tank I felt pure black was the way to go.
I used to work for petsmart and this woman came in and bought neon mixed colour gravel, neon plastic plants, neon roman themed ornaments, and bright blue background plastic.
Then she came back and bough six black mollies.
People are so strange.
