Maco Genius Film is a lot more sensitive than APHS. I've had problems with it fogging under red safe light too. To process it in trays, I can't have a safelight in the bathroom with me, rather, it's in the next room (also light tight) and i only just have a hope of seeing the trays and maybe the buttons on the timer. I use Ilford Multigrade 1+9 for about 1minute. I last used the stuff for kirlian photography and I remember just about seeing an image come up so there must be enough light for vaguely inspecting it.
