    I lost my fish tan formula. I remember it had water, salt, borax and glycerin. Anybody help with the amount of these items in the fish tan formula? Thank you

    Unfortunately those chemicals above only preserve a skin. Tanning a fish skin is really totally different but its common to mis-use a tan compared to tanning as we here this all the time on the tanning forum.
    Pro-1 has a solution that is considered a tan produced by a chemist and if Paul says its a tan then it tans the skin for mounting only , not garments like eels or salmon skins that are tanned in a different way.
    I would give Pro-1 a try if your looking to tan
