4" of fish per gallon means I could keep a 18' great white in a 55 gallon. I suspect that was a typo.

P.S. Many fish think "fish" is food.

IMO 4" of fish per gallon is for the fish market.

I read somewhere on the forums today that 1" of fish per 5 gallons of water is a general rule of thumb.

That sounds about right. I think I just got it all mixed up and stuff, so much info you need to know it's hard to remember it without being confused. You know?
