Oyama paper for planted tanks

Hi all,

I've just ordered a 3ft x 1.5ft x 1.5ft tank. The LFS was asking what colours would i like for my Oyama paper, for the background, bottom and sides. As i have absolutely no idea, i went for a black background, with the understanding that it brings the best out of the fishes' colours and resembles that of their natural habitat. I opt to give a miss for the bottom and sides. Is that advisable? What is the preferred choice of colours?

I like white for more open scapes and black for taller ones. Interesting that it's called Oyama in singapore.
Didn't realise its unavailable in the States. What kind of paper do you guys use?
I just used the back of some old poster that I had. :biggrin:
But I think other people have used window tint (paint on and peel and stick), krylon spray paint, poster paper, actual manufactured solid backgrounds... It probably is available in the US, just that I have never heard of it... it sounds pretty neat though.
