Try a substrate that is neutral or light colored. White or beige sand looks great with dark colored fish, but it could be a hassle with a smaller tank. You could get some brown gravel. I have brown polished pebbles gravel in my ten gallon, and I think Ares stands out pretty well. You can get it at petsmart. BTW, Stephano is beautiful!

You could also get smooth glass pebbles in a pale, clear or iridescent colour. They are good for a small tank, easy to rinse when you change the water and easy to find and suck up dirt between changes with a turkey baster. I got mine at Petsmart.

Thank you, I should state that the sand (you can see a small amount in the tank) has been removed because Gandalf liked to eat it . Also the 2 "plastic" plants have been removed and more live plants have been added. I need to get an updated pic :) But it hasn't changed that much so you get the general idea :)
