Color help needed. Yikes!!

Ok. So my husband loves his new fish tank Unfortunately, it looks very black (now that its all up and assembled! Also, the LED lights the fish love cast a grey light that totally changes the paint color I recently chose
So. Wondering what tone of white or cream you would recommend for the mantel and cupboards that he will be building across the entire lower half of the wall.
Also, any recommendations re adjoining (lighter) walls ? (Room is south facing with lots of good light and white or cream trim to come around windows and slider. )
