    Any staining that takes place in film or paper may take years and years to show up. I have generally seen that bad stains take as little as 5 years to show up, and moderate stains take 15 - 20 years or more. So, don't talk about seeing no stains until you have looked at your prints in 20 years.

    Steve.
    That's the experience of many others, the stain isn't affected by the use of normal fixers ith pH's in the region of 5.2/5.4. Prescsol is a clone of Pyrocat HD so behave the same way.

    I've run tests with prints processed in a Pyro developer and the stain is very stable and unaffected by fixer.

    Just to quash another myth -stains from using Pyro developoers don't suddenly appear after a number of years. Stains particularly with FB prints do show up after time and that might be years from inadequate fixing/washing but that can happen with any developer.
