If you don't have a black goldfish, normally a dark substrate(like black) will make colors pop more.

Green would be the best contrast :yuck: Personally I'd do regular tan coloured sand with a green background.

I've had Sara and Maybelle for six months. Sara was all orange, then all gold, and now all white. Maybelle was orange with lots of distinctive black markings; now she is all orange.
The gravel started out river-bottomy tan and off-white and stayed that way.

usually for goldfish aquariums and for substrate and gravel I like to take the more natural look and go with black or brown substrate with gravel that is light brown and tan

Darker substrate works best for goldfish in my experience since they poop a lot and it doesn't show up so well on dark substrate. You would still be able to see the black goldfish if your background is blue.

Black Diamond Blasting Sand for your substrate, and blue for your background.
I would say green is better; lavender is to close to blue, IMO.

I didn't mention lavender. I love the smell of lavender, but not the color.
