The background is natural. The clear tone is given by the water column and the far away rocks. I waited >10minutes to take this shot as the little fellow was moving between the weed to hunt small crustaceans

Christmas Tree Worms are my favorite subject. You have to be very stealthy to get in close to them. This is not cropped with only backscatter removed.
