Do you still have this problem?  I use Aquamacs with dark backgrounds all the time, and it looks great.  FWIW, here's the relevant section of my ~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs/customizations.el file:

  ;; custom-set-faces was added by Custom.
  ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
  ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
 '(autoface-default ((((type ns)) (:inherit default :height 120 :family "Menlo" :background "#000028"))))
 '(font-lock-comment-face ((((class color) (min-colors 88) (background dark)) (:foreground "green"))))
 '(font-lock-constant-face ((((class color) (min-colors 88) (background dark)) (:foreground "gold"))))
 '(font-lock-string-face ((((class color) (min-colors 88) (background dark)) (:foreground "yellow"))))
 '(latex-mode-default ((t (:inherit text-mode-default :stipple nil :strike-through nil :underline nil :slant normal :weight normal :height 120 :width normal :family "Menlo"))))
 '(text-mode-default ((t (:inherit autoface-default :height 120 :family "Menlo")))))
