Background and lighting suggestions?

I have own this Aqueon 2.5 mini bow for a while now. I recently decided to take another shot at it after my old betta left me.

This is it's current state:



I've been thinking of switching out the light for something else. But the lamp hood doesn't offer much change. I'm also worry about the background being too "green" for Tea. Any suggestions?

Here is Tea:

I would say change the background, it is a saltwater background lol. You could do say a planted tank background for more depth, I have my own plants so I don't opted for those, or you can just do a plain white or black to highlight your fish's colors. Though black may create reflections...

A plain black background would probably look fabulous with those white fins. I'd go cheap and just do a matte sheet of posterboard, honestly. (I've never done a background on mine; don't know how that would work, haha.)

Ya. I would change out the background, too. It's a saltwater reef. Kinda looks tacky in my opinion. I like solid color backgrounds. A single black piece of paper would do for a tank that small. I've got a white betta on a black background and he looks amazing.
