    Posts ago I was talking about this problem happened on my negatives:


    As the NGers suggested I retryed to develop a batch of five rolls
    120... Yeah I found the problem.

    Not the developer: it works quite good also after five usages in
    Not the photoflo reacting with developer.
    Not in the fixer in itself: fresh and well diluted works fine

    The problem it is in *my distraction*:
    usually when I fix I'm gentle agitating the tank at the beginning to
    start a good fix. Then I open the tanks after five minutes and I
    continue to fix with inspection.

    I don't know why but for some distraction I was agitating, as
    developing, the tank full of fixer. So it produced some foam that is
    not disappeared as the tank is not open...

    This evening i will not agitated at all as my usual... and the
    problem is not appeared..

    Well d'you think I was an idiot? Where was my mind when fixing and

    Ciao and thanks for help and suggestions!

    Hi Stefano
    I don't remember fixer foaming. In fact, I think it shouldn't foam. I
    think it's excessive PhotoFlo carry over from previous processing.
    Also isn't 5 min. a long time for fixing film? And no, you are not an
    idiot. Someone wrote the photography is posessed by demons just
    waiting to trap unexpecting photographers.

    Best wishes, John
