This has not been my observations.  I thought he's pretty much on target 
for his larger tanks, and actually on the high side for the smaller 
tanks.  See Erik's summary at
http://www.thekrib.com/Plants/Tech/Lighting/light-a.gif .   But I guess it 
all depends on what YOUR "watt per gallon rule" is.  Mine is 1 to 4 W/gal, 
inversely proportional to tank size, with the average at 2 W/g.
