To my understanding light colored substrate will make cherries especially low grades look very pale/clear.
+1. A dark substrate makes the colouration of shrimp look much deeper.

My RCS tank has white pool filter sand, and they stand out on it just fine. My desk tank at work has black petco sand and they don't look any redder to me.

My RCS tank at home does have some females losing color, but that's because of inbreeding, not the environment. Each generation gets paler and paler.
