That's good to know. I, too, store my fix in plastic containers (reused Kodak chemical bottles from a lab). I use the two-bath fixer system and it was my first bottle of fixer where the bottle turned black. I figured it was the silver particles, but I thought it was a bad thing and time to replace the bottle. I still have the bottle (figured I'd clean it one day), and will put it back into service
