We are trying to cut fish scales that have been decalcified.  They are chunking out when we try to cut them.  I think we need to soften the keratin and I looked in the archives for the right dilution of ammonium hydroxide to use.  One post said 5% the other said straight.  What dilution do you recommend?  I'm think it would probably be the same as what you use on toenails.
