I think it is all relative --blue or black. It depends on the species which you are using.

If you are creating an aquascape which will focus on intricate plant groupings such as Dutch tanks or layered Nature Aquarium style tanks, your best bet will be black.

If you are going to focus more on good rock and driftwood hardscaping with fewer species of plants, your best bet will be the blue (or white!).

I cannot wait until I start seeing American aquascapers start using colors other than black for their layouts. Yes, black does make your plants stand out better but that is beyond the point. White and blue backgrounds create a sense of continuation and vastness which the black "wall" lacks.
