FAF f/2 must be kept refrigerated because of the vitamins it contains.

But I keep the thio solution not refrigerated.Over time some mold/bacteriae develops but it keeps unaffected,as you can tell by the smell.

Thanks for info from an experienced hand in this. Could you detail "tell by the smell"? Do you mean that the smell of the thiosulfate stays the same over time? Or that you smell-test after dechlorination to see if bleach is all gone?
