    Here are my before and after shots of my bass tank the bass is currently in a 20h and is about 4 inches long(I am aware of the tank needs and will be putting him in a 75 gallon next month and have plans for a 325 gallon plywood in the future).

    Before 2 incandescent lights, white gravel, and a whisper ex20 filter.

    After incandescent lights replaced with daylight cfl's, gravel replaced with Black Diamond sand, added a Tetra 20-40, and a pothos plant.

    Since October he was under an inch when I got him.
    They are very hardy fish he lived a week in an unfiltered 10 gallon tank with daily 50% water changes.

    From my pond I got him removing some weeds patches from it and there were a bunch of bream and bass caught in it.

    They're fun fish to watch when little, but they seem to fade out and become a pain in the 6-12in range when they wont take anything but live and never seem to be satisfied. Just my experience. But i like your guy and I hope he grows big and healthy, good luck. i would say stick with the dark gravel, add a black background and some plants, this will make them retain their colors as long as possible and the plants help bring out their green.
