I've always been told that the infamous "1 inch of fish/gallon" is actually
"1 inch of slim-bodied fish/gallon" - this would include most tetras, zebra
danios, rasboras, but larger(& fatter) fish such as plecos, angels, discus,
etc. would not adhere exactly to this rule - ie, you shouldn't have 60" of
discus in a 60 gal. tank if you're going strictly by the rules.
