Hello all-- This appears to be the forum I've been looking for. Been into photography for about 3 years now-mostly film-and have recently been bitten by the B&W photography bug and darkroom after taking a darkroom course. I have set up a darkroom at home, been happily developing film (results-so far so good) and now am just beginning to get into printing. I have some incredibly naive newbie questions that perhaps someone can help me with: I've been using Ilford Rapid Fixer-4:1 for film, 9:1 for prints. Question-how often can you reuse the fixer. Do you keep separate batches for film dilution and paper dilution? I kept all the fixer I've used to date as I'm aware its a big no-no to pour the stuff down the sink. Many Thanks, this is probably just the first of many questions.
