    Which one of these would you reccomend?
    Neither; they both use a blix. They will work, but the quality of results will decline with the age of the kit. If at all possible, get a kit with separate bleach and fix.

    The Tetenal kit is better. I have used both, also the full kodak fuji 7 bath kits. The tetenal gives the same results as kodak fuji. No differece, just easier.
    Blix works just as good as seperate bleach and fix baths, the difference being that you must use it within 2 weeks of mixing. Seperate bleach and fix is designed for continuous industrial lab usage with a replenished system. Blix is for 1,2,3 shot use then discard home processing.

    Also, remember that there is NO wash step between the bleach then fix steps in kodak fuji, because it is not needed. Bleach and fixer can be combined, but must then be used within 2 weeks.
