Farmer's removes silver, won't do anything for dyes. It has a short 
shelf life once mixed, can cause irregular stains, needs practice & 
experimenting with dilution & is mildly toxic too.

You may be able to squeeze a bit more from the negs by turning up the 
brightness of the light in your LS2000. Sometimes it's best to do two 
scans, one at normal light level & one at bright & then paint one 
into the other.
