What is the best color gravel for a planted tank?

Advice? debating between natural color (brown) and black.

It doesn't really matter for any reason other then aesthetics.

I typically look up pictures to get ideas on which looks better. I have brown and now I want to go black.


Black makes some bettas colors pop and the green plants would really pop :)

I have a white/brownish gravel, if I had to do it again I would get fluval stratum or black gravel.

I chose to go with black gravel but I'm now regretting it :(, there are still no plants or decorations since it is in the process of a fishless cycle, I hope it looks better after. Thnx for the advice, we'll c how it turns out.
