Fish calculator

When calculating the recommended fish capacity of a saltwater tank (using the nice calculator provided on the site) do you use the show tank size or the total volume of water? I have a 188 gallon show tank with a 90 gallon refugium/sump. Do I use the 188 or 278 in my calculation?

Its also good to note that the result of the calculator is only a starting point for figuring out your stocking capacity.
