    a 10-15 degree temperature change during photo-flo, will this have adverse effect?

    screwed up and forgot to adjust temp during final step (photo-flo), will this have adverse effect on the quality of the negs?
    tx400/microdol.

    I doubt you will see any effect.

    Was the PF colder or warmer than the rest of the process.

    I think you will be fine.
    Some softer emulsion films like Efke or maybe Foma?? can reticulate if shocked too much.
    Also if you used a fixer with hardener that will help 'toughen" the emulsion.

    Nothing past the developer stage will affect grain, though reticulation will produce a grainy sort of look.
    A 10 -15 temperature drop is a lot, but probably won't be a problem for Kodak products as Bruce said.

    With TX, there will probably be no problem. Some non-hardened films (there a still a couple of these) could suffer reticulation.
