Fresh each roll or sheet of paper, that's the way I use fixer.
But "full strength" not by a long shot. My fixers are very dilute.
For each film or paper there is a certain maximum amount of
silver that can be Entirely complexed. I allow for that much
plus a little more. So much silver so much fixer.

I achieve good chemical milage that way. Of course it works
well with the single tray processing method. Or single tube
processing for that matter. Silver levels in the spent fix
are VERY low, 'archival' level. Shorter less water
demanding washes. Dan
