Bushfish has it right. The OP was talking area so everything would be in sq.
No because then a 12" oscar would only need an area of 144 sq" which is only one square foot, thats smaller then a ten gallon tank.
What it amounts to is the surface area equation/rule does not work. While the modified "one inch per gallon" rule does work for most fish.
