I have to agree with black going with everything as NJ and RTimbz has said. Remember the tank and it's stand are also part of the house's decor (whether u like it or not). A bad choice in trim wouldnt have the same "wow" factor as one that goes with the other stuff in the room it is in. This is actually one of the reasons why I still have not upgraded because my furniture is finished in smooth cherry. The only tank/stand combo I could find this side of the country is ridiculously priced. Imagine a cherry finished stand for $ 700??!? And I have also not considered building and staining one because I do not have the carpentry skills or the time to build one.
