Toss the inch per gallon rule, it doesn't look at bioloads. You wouldnt put a 10inch fish in your ten gallon right? Try aqadvisor.com, some like it some hate it. But its pretty conservative and it gives you schooling requirements and compatability. I dont think our fish count to makes sure there are enough in their school, but safety comes in numbers.
