Dark driftwood? Green plants? Cardinal tetras? Sounds like a recipe for a _white_ background. Do not be afraid to try something new.

Personally, I think black backgrounds are best reserved for this layouts with complex or highly colorful stem plant groupings.

But this is an ultra flexible rule of thumb, and I've seen successful applications of all sorts of colors ranging from white to yellow to red to violet to blue to black. Try them all and find out what has the right "feel" you want to express in your layout.

Also, when asking a question like this, a photo of the tank would be nice.
