Sounds to me you need to alternate the background color for each message.


To do this you'll need to initiate a counter, for this we'll use the variable $i. And we'll define the two background colors

$i = 0; // init counter
// define background colors
$bg_color1 = '#999';
$bg_color2 = '#666';

Now when displaying each messsage you'd do have this

$bg_color = (++$i % 2 == 0) ? $bg_color1 : $bg_color2; // alternavte background color

echo '<div style="background-color: $bg_color">$message</div>'; // set the background color for the message

It's easier if you set the colors specific from the user's perspective. So each user sees his own messages with a green background, while they see all other's messages in different colors.


This also means you only need a few colors versus one specific color for each member.
