    I mixed one gallon of Kodak Professional Fixer from powder. That gives me my stock solution. What should the working solution be?

    Use it as it is. You don't dilute powdered fixers.

    Any fixer can be diluted by quite a bit and still thoroughly
    fix film or paper. Of course there must be enough of the
    chemistry in whatever solution volume to do the job.
    The more dilute, the more time in the fixer.

    I use fixer so dilute that it is nearly exhausted after
    one roll or one or a few prints at same time processed.
    Very little good chemistry goes down the drain. Dan
