Agree. I didn't mean to imply it necessarily needs to be used "one shot". Thanks.

Unlike some others, I also use HCA with film.
In short, I fix films in re-used film fix but, IMHO, I am careful and conservative about how I do so, and have the knowledge and experience that permits me to do it safely.
