Light or dark substrate?

I'm curious what colors people are running here. I switched from black sand to natural gravel and some of my clowns lost color. I've since mixed some black gravel in to no avail. What I cannot determine is whether it's really the color of the substrate or the type of substrate that has them on edge. If I return to sand, I'd like to go with light, natural-looking color.

So what color substrate is everyone running, and has that changed from a previous color with good or bad reactions from your fish? Do they seem to like it?
