Good Evening, Mindthemix,

Looks as if you're off to a good start.

1)You can get by with water for a stop bath, especially if you fill and dump several times. 2)The wash time is shorter than I would use, but five minutes should be OK if preceded by a two-minute treatment in a hypo-clear solution; I use Permawash, but there are others available. 3)The reddish (magenta?) tint is not unusual, especially with T-Max film; washing should eliminate it anyway.
