    Glad you found the problem.

    A roll of rubylith is good to have on hand for the darkroom. I don't know what I'd do without it, aside from completely boarding up my basement. I hang flaps of it over the edges of my sliding door, and a sheet of it over my basement window. Instead of blocking the light, it turns it into a safelight, and it is easily reversible. I get mine at a screen printing shop.

    Elsewhere in this thread has suggested to put the print face up in the developer. I have never done that, never will . Just for the fear of light leaks*. I place the print face down agitate 30 second, turn up right for a couple of sec to see an image forming then face down, then stop ( running rater generally for me) then fixer face down for 45 sec , then examine and then fix #2 face down 45sec

    do you ever get dark marks from the silver on the bottom of the tray?

    in my current setup i just have shelves that are barely big enough for the paper so i kind of have to pull each tray out and push the other in with my legs so i can keep two hands with tongs. it's tough to do flipping. but what your saying sounds like a good thing to do.

    you can get marks on the prints from the tray bottom , especially if it has ribs; usually from a lack of liquid depth, and/or pushing the paper down and letting it stay there for a period of time.

    You might want to clean your trays more often if you are getting silver in the bottom...
