Need a picture of black vs. white background

Show me a picture of a white background vs. a black one with the same tank. Can anyone do this? I would be very grateful.

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....

Well, I don't have a side-by-side of a tank with both, but for some photography work I was doing, I was playing around with all sorts of backgrounds and lighting and coloring...maybe it will give you some ideas...

Those are all out of the camera, only cropped, and not cropped to the tank so you can see how a broader area might look.

wow joe...I like thephoto transition

Mr. B I always prefer the black background as it looks deeper and makes healthy plant color and fish color pop.
just my opinion

i would think the white helps reflect the light and might help the bottoms of your plants get more light, but visually, i really like the black background. it makes all your plants/fish stand out.

I still like the white backgrounds. Imo it gives a scape a feel of depth.
