Yah but you can get away with that if you are more of a seasoned fish keeper and know how to pick top level, middle level, and bottom level swimmers. I am not one of those so I stick to the 1 inch per gallon rule as a guideline.
Also you need to mention that it is 1 inch per gallon of ADULT sized fish.
Also keep in mind understocked means cleaner tank, so you have less chance for fish dying so I try to keep it down.
