Seachem MultiTest Silicate

Natural sea water contains about 10 mg/L as silicate. In reef or other marine aquaria, silicate should be 1 mg/L or less. Silicate is non-toxic to fish and invertebrates, but is ideally kept below 1 mg/L to minimize diatomaceous algae. In freshwater, silicate is not critical. Usually, freshwater silicate concentrations will range in the area of 4–20 mg/L.

MultiTest Silicate measures silicates to less than 0.5 mg/L in marine or freshwater. This kit measures soluble silicate and reports it as silicate concentration. To convert to silicon, multiply by 0.3. It performs over 75 tests and contains a reference sample for validation.


  • Measures silicates to less than 0.5 mg/L
  • Multi-cavity plate for simultaneous testing of up to 6 tests at the same time
  • Includes reference for test validation
  • Marine and freshwater
