Not "maintaining" it, it just is that way.  I don't add anything to it comes
out of the tap and into my tank via a Python and that is that.  I am no
scholar when it comes to my tank, but as all seemes to be doing ok, plants,
fish, shrimp I don't fiddle with it.  I f there is a way to add calcium for
the MTS shells without disturbing what seems to be a working balance please
let me know.
