on the other hand where does the Salix icon live so I can recolor it? it's black and doesn't show well in the panel with dark themes.
Which icon theme are you currently using?
If it is GNOME, then go to /usr/share/icons/gnome/*/categories/ and find the icons that you would like to replace.
Copy the index.theme (edit Name=<any_name>) file along with the directory structure and shortcut files.
Pick the desired icons and rename them accordingly.
