    I just developed C41 and accidentally tossed the stabilizer instead of pouring it back into the container. I now have about 200 ml left...my tank holds about 375 ml. It doesn't appear you can get more separately. Will 200ml be sufficient or do I have to get another kit for my next c41 batch? Is there another product I can get?

    Thanks!

    Get Kodak's flexicolor C-41 final rinse or stabilizer. It's cheap and better than unicolor. In my experience, tetenal was leaving some residue on film, and Kodak was much cleaner.

    Thank you for the tip. It looks like it's not easy to find. The one they sell at BH seems to be the older vrsion that also requires a stabilizer. I found it at one other place but they seem to want an order of 12. It's interesting, in B/W you can get each item of chemistry separately but with C41 you seem to need to buy a kit.

    Check adorama, I think they sell it individually. Alternatively, there are several listings on bay of E.
