Just to clarify, Josh was correct.  By design if you make the close source stroke and fill "unset" (not none - with unset it will show up black on screen) then you can change the fill and stroke of clones.  This is a technique I use all the time, and is the whole basis of the trace tab in tiled clones.

The nature of a "clone" is that it is an exact clone of the original. By
nature, you cannot change attributes of a clone rather than its
placement and transformations.

If you need different strokes or fills you should make copies and not
