I just bought some liquid rosin flux from Can't hurt to try it I guess! Thanks,Huck
The stuff I use is pretty thin too. I can't remember the brand and ratio right now. I can check when I get home.

Using won't hurt that for sure. I have just never felt the need.

Just my 2 cents
Some people use it others don't. I have never had a solder joint give me any problems.
