    ahh awesome, thanks for the site!

    Well i hear developers keep longer in glass bottles because oxygen go through plastic bottles.. they're not too expensive anyways, so i'll go with glass.

    Mine came from specialty bottle. Best $200 I ever spent next to the air filter and water filter.

    Buy the caps with the cone insert and two for every bottle. Dry the lip befor sealing.

    Clear bottles can be kept in a box.

    Plastic may or may not be air tight. Certain plastics breath.

    You can see if glas bottles are clean.

    You might want to look here:

    http://www.specialtybottle.com/

    Within the Glass Bottle category they list Amber as well as Clear and Blue.

    Personally I choose glass over plastic because I believe the plastic will pass air. There is no known reason not to use glass and a lot of hearsay or rumor or myth in using plastic.

    If you're not buying hundreds of bottles then a dozen glass won't cost a significant amount over plastic. You'll have peace of mind. That's valuable.

    I've had luck on ebay with brown glass Boston rounds and half-gallon jugs.

    64 Oz. "Growlers" are perfect for what you want to do, available at your local micro brewery or well stocked over 21 store.

    Price, about $1.50 forfeited bottle deposit after you've enjoyed the contents.

    Cheers! no pun intended

    Just bought some 1 litre with the hinged cap, amber beer bottles from a home brewers supply. $20 for 6. They had larger and smaller ones, however, they weren't what I was lloking for so I didn't pay any attention to the sizes. Might be a place to look.

But that's been my experience.
    Sparky;

    Unless your darkroom is light at least 8 hours per day and uses a lot of UV, there is NOTHING in a developer solution that is overly light sensitive. You would have to BLAST it with high intensity light to cause a problem with keeping the developer around.

    The big problem is AIR. Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide are your enemies.
