don't float, since they will be evenly wet for all the time. I will just
have to agitate the tray every few minutes which is relatively a small
price to pay. But I'm more preoccupied about developing face up floating
media; I'm fearing it will not be evenly develop + I will have agitate
much vigorously (which may affect the qualities of the print). Anyway,
it's noted as a useful tool in case of need. Hope that does the trick for
