RE: fixing van dyke

AFAIK (not sure), rapid fixer contains around 45% - 48% Ammonium
Thiosulfate. Since I fix using 2% Sodium Thiosulfate (for not more than
1 - 1:30 minute), I would try 1 part Ilford Rapid Fixer + 24 parts water
(for 1 minute again) and see what happens... !?

I had someone ask me about fixing van dyke brown with Ilford Rapid Fix. 
Does anyone have a good recomendation for a dilution that won't bleach
the print?
