If this occurs, increase the replenishment rate. The thread that follows may help you with that: Matt Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. What are your thoughts Matt?

Responsibility for judging the applicability of the information for a specific use rests with the end user. I can not find my instructions on mixing them, but I finally got what you all were saying.
Fixing efficiency can be improved by raising the temperature of the fixer or by reducing the speed of the processor. You will get various opinions on the use of the hardener. I'll throw in one more question. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time! Some people may choose to use even less hardener in the fix when doing paper, though. If you don't use the hardener when you mix up your fixer, just replace it with water.
