    I have a green terror and I'm trying to pick out background colors that really make her stand out. I tried back and it doesn't really do the trick. Is lighter colors the way to go to contrast the green and blues? Is there any resource on this?

    Is your tank heavily planted? If so I would imagine black would be the way to go. Maybe you could try a very light blue.

    Sometimes a very dark Blue, or a dark purple ( aubergine dark ) will work.

    I'm still trying to find out if green terrors are plant eaters or not... most of what I've read so far is that they do eat plants.. I have two amazon swords in there as a trial to see if she eats them

    Okay then I agree with Thai Aquarium Owner. Dark purple I think will look good with the fish's colors and the bright green of the swords
