Speaking of bioloads, how do you measure them as compared to fish? You can go appx 1 inch per gallon on fish. Is there similar rules for corals?

That rule of thumb works for freshwater, not saltwater fish, as there are many saltwater fish that are open water swimmers and require lots of room...for example. In terms of coral, as long as you are able to keep the water parameters stable and proper lighting you can pretty much fill the tank to the brim with corals.
