Recommended silicate values:
Freshwater aquarium (community aquarium): 0-2.0 mg/l
Lake Malawi/Lake Tanganyika aquarium: the silicate content is not relevant here because grazing fish species like eating diatoms
Plant aquarium with few fish (aquascaping): 0-2.0 mg/l
Marine water Aquarium: 0-1.0 mg/l
Pond: 0-2.0 mg/l
