Multiple Firefish?

Everywhere I've read anything about firefish it says not to keep them together. On rare occasion I've seen some people keeping just a pair together or more in the same tank, not meeting the minimum requirements for keeping more than a single. Does this rule of not having more than one in a tank apply to the different sub-types to? Like having 1 Firefish + 1 Purple Firefish? or even for a daring person, a Helfrichi + Another Firefish?

I bought 2 firefish and the dominate one chased the other one around for about 2 months, not long after that the weak one got skinny and died. It was kinda hard to watch. If i did it again i would buy 4-5. How bid is your tank?
