minor issue: if you chose the fish symbol for point data, and then change the fill color, it stays filled with grey.

None of the symbols (apart from the first 7) can be colorized. This is due to the type of the symbol. Marking this as an enhancement.

This is something that we will address in a future version of QGIS (probably 2.0 I think). The solution involves manipulating SVG stylesheets and the Qt4 svg support just isnt available yet for this.

I think this bug can be closed. I am able to choose the fill and border colors of nearly any point symbol in QGIS.
There are still some symbols that have fixed colors. For those, the border and fill color selection controls are disabled so you can easily find if you are using a fixed color symbol or not.
