    Hello every one , i recently used some forte plywarmtone with kodak d-9 dilution 1+8 for about 1 min and in the second developper moersch omega lith dilution 1+200 , the colors are strong and beautiful but when i put the print in the fixer , the colors simply desappears , i m wondering if moersch lith omega works only with meoersch easy lith and moersch master lith ?
    I used as fixer ilfofix II and also adolux fixer but with the same result
    Thank you for help

    Had the same problem myself, but with a different paper and developer/bleach combination. On the second developer pass, wonderful range of colours that all but disappeared in the fix. Consulting Tim Rudman's books, virtually nothing is mentioned of the problem.. Consensus in older posts suggest that a neutral to alkaline fixer such as TF-3 is the answer.

    Got some Sodium thiosulfate on the shelf, so will try an alkaline fix over the weekend..
