Yeah, Saix is still alive and well. His ammonia burn is gone, and his tail fin has recovered. But he's still covered in black stuff. It doesn't look like a color change, but if it is it's way too dramatic. He started off as a light peach fish and is now covered in dark grey/black patches. And I'm especially worried because his left eye is now black and I don't think he can see with it.
