    Sounds about right, it's about being consistent so that you achieve the same results each time. I use inversion agitation for 35mm, 120 & 5x4 negs and gentle continuous inversions for the first 30 seconds then 2 inversions every minute. My dev times are around 10-15 mins if shorter 5-9 mins then I'd agitatee every 30 seconds.
