[APD] Stocking Levels

I have a 7-gallon bowfront that's been languishing for several years with 
plants doing their own thing and no fish.  Suddenly I have the urge to redo 
and restock it.  So I looked at this year's small tanks in the AGA contest, 
thinking there might be some inspiration there.  What struck me most about 
the small tanks, however, was the high fish numbers in almost all of 
them.  Yes, they're small fish, but I think I counted 20-30 fish in the 
majority of the ones equal to or pretty equivalent to my 7-gallon.  Has the 
inch per gallon rule just gone bye the bye in the last several years?  Are 
such high stock levels sustainable?
