I'm partial to black myself. I think using a dark color (black, dark blue, etc.) gives an illusion of depth, and can help bring out the colors of fish and plants (similar to a dark substrate).

On the other hand, I think most of the pics of Amano tanks I've seen don't seem to have any background at all, and they look pretty good.
