I use a pale blue or pale green, and sometimea an off-white background. When you're doing micro photography, its extremely important to use plenty of light, and I mean a lot. I use a pebble surface mat board of the appropiate color set at a small angle to avoid hot spots, shadows, etc. Light sources also hav a "color" also. Incandescent light will give a yellow color, so be careful using that. You will have to experiment to see what works for you.
