The 1"/gallon rule is more confusing than helpful for anything but tiny tetras.

Hypothetically, comparing two fish with the same body shape, one 1", one 10", the 10" one weighs 1000 times as much as the 1" one, and produces about 1000 times more waste than the little guy! Think about that for a minute.

It is better to estimate fish load by weight than length, but then, it is more abstract.
