Marek, I have a computer stand with 4 shelves -- on wheels. if
you can possibly fit one of those in the bathroom, or even nearby, you can
stack quite a few trays on it... I too like to work on many prints at
once, which is a big help in NOT forcing a print because I'm tired of
watching it.... Maybe you could hang a shelf of some kind over the tub?

Then again, I admit.... I can NEVER develop a print in 15 minutes. Even a
half hour is rarely enough ! I suspect you'll find if you do cut down the
dichromate, the print will still be runny in that short a period, or, if
you add exposure, not developed enough. (It's always a tradeoff.) Please
let us know !
