Which background would you go with? A dark blue or light blue one? I currently have Caribsea Eco Complete white sand and my fronts are looking so pale lol.

I've added some white reef and coral rocks as well, need to find some nice big black ones for the 130 gallon.

Which background would you go with though? Think a pet shop would let me try both and return the one I don't want? I have 7 Kigoma fronts and 2 Burundi (although 1 has 7 stripes on both sides? weird?). Using 2 Actinic 54w Lights in the front and 2 regular white/yellows in the back, altough I will replace the 3rd white with another actinic, is that a good idea?

Thanks.
