    Tank or tray development?

    Any other useful background information?

    Maybe insufficient bleach fix particularly if you're reusing it. It gets exhaused.

    Yes you can do it again in the light and try double the normal time. Give the bleach a good shake in a partially full bottle because the oxygen in the air helps regenerate it.

    In cheaper kits it's usually the bleach or bleach fix taht cuases problems.

    If it's not a bleach or fix problem, you may have uneven development. 3:15 is a very short time and 10 seconds of uneveness may already matter. The Tetenal kit recommends developing at 30°C with longer times in such cases, maybe you can try the same with your Rollei kit. If they don't supply times for 30° processing maybe you can infer them from looking at Tetenal's 30°C times.
    Trying to be the best of whatever I am, even if what I am is no good.
