If you are using different tubes from mine , you'll probably need to change the colours of your background :

You may change the colour of it by using the Colorizing effect but you will only get one colour !

It is better to use the effect below :

Adjust / Hue and Saturation / Hue, Saturation, Lightness

Play around with the three cursors to obtain colours that match your tubes

Here are two examples of different colours I managed to get !

It is up to you to decide which colour, which mode and which opacity suit you !
