Default Number of fish to tank size

So I know petros do best in large packed groups and big tanks for aggression reasons, but can a tank be to big? I have a 50g 40"x18"x15" with about 20 fry at 1 inch they look very small in the tank. Is this ok? Curious to kn ow also would 20 petros full grown in say a 12'x4'x3' tank be TOO big?

Im just trying to get whats more important for good petro keeping!

I am assuming a good porportion is key. Ample swimming room yet still bunched up

Thanks

What kind of petros do plan to raise. How big do they grow. As I understand it, 20 full grown petros will be trouble once they start to stake out there territory.

I would be looking at about 75 in a tank that size. As said above you may get serious aggro. Tjank tank would be great for blue giants. I know exactly how I would stock it.
