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 have two red firefish in the same 30 gallon tank and it seems as though they like each other at times but usually they are trying to nip at each others top fin. I've been considering getting rid of one of them but they aren't too easy to catch without tearing apart the tank. I wouldn't recommend keeping only two together unless they are a male/female pair.
