    I take it this is color film?
    It will likely be ok...
    BW-- you may have crystalized fixer spots all over the film already.
    Why not just just rinse and repeat the final steps if BW-- color I don't know for sure but you are likely ok.

    What do you mean by "stabilizer"?

    Trying an answer to your questions without knowing what your stabilizer is (sistan or the like?), I would rewash the negs and then re-stabilize (?!?) and quite surely trash the stabilizer before that, as some fixer has certainly remained in it and you don't want it to get on the future negatives after you washed them ;-)

    First, since this is the color forum, it is color film! Secondly, if it was slide film, I had write it, and in e6 I know that there is a wash after the blix or fixer.
    What do I mean by stabilizer, possibly the stabilizer bath, the final solution that I have to put the film in. What kind is? Do not know, it's a c-41 stabilizer, that comes with the rollei digibase kit. I apologise for not being accurate in that point, but then again, the question is simple.
    Thank you for the answers!

    If you go from the fix to the "stabilzer", regardless of the type of stabilizer, it is contaminated and should be discarded.

    In addition, the film image will degrade with time. It should be washed, fixed and washed and then stabilized in fresh stabilizer (or final rinse).

    Thank you PE! Will order new stab and do that. The new fixing is the same time? 6'and 30''?
