My thought is that the blix is becoming exhausted and the pH is going up due to carryover of developer (unless you use a stop bath). With the pH rise, there is a chance of continued development and perhaps some silver or silver halide retention.

Just a WAG based on what you see and without any knowledge of tank capacity of your system.

Hi PE,
Yea 6 16x's went through, very close to the suggested square inches per volumne before replen.
All tanks are 2 liters, with squeege rollers between. 95 degrees/45 secs per step.
A 32ml. of Acetic Acid for 2 liters of H2O as stop.
Using the same replen rate for the DEV and BLX/FIX.
My rig doesn't have inline filters, so I print up to chem limits, within time-in-tanks limit, then either replen or dump/replace,
depending on which comes first.
The DEV time limit is 1 week, but the BLX time limit is 2 weeks.
At this point the DEV time has expired, but the BLX/FIX still has another week.
Deviations have always happened like this in the past, but I never really tried to understand why.
