I'm guessing it's the substrate color. In my 72, I had pool filter sand and my Bolivian rams. They were never very colorful, but they were happy and breeding. A while back I changed out to Black Diamond and within a day of being back in the tank, they were gorgeous.

Here is a pic of a fish that was very tan and bland over tan sand. This was taken about a week after changing to the Black Diamond.
