    Purple Shine on Tri-X negatives?

    Hey,

    I Just developed(dektol 1:10) a roll of 400TX and when rinsing I noticed they had a purple shine on them. From previous experiences with T-Max development I thought the film was unsufficiently fixed, so I tried fixing an extra 3mins, while already fixing for 8mins, but the film seemed to get even more purple.
    Anyone got any idea's why the film might be purple and/or how to fix this?

    Thanks

    Purple Shine on Tri-X Negatives

    Did you use hypo clearing agent? How long was your rinse?

    Hypo is fixer--not to be confused with Kodak Hypo Clearing Agent and similar products.

    Tri-X does have a slight tint to the base that some other films don't have.

    hm I wonder, since this is an old emulsion, would it need more then 30mins washing with running water(+-25°C) ??
    I have some Hypo Clearing Agent laying around...
