Firefish tank

I everyone I'm planning on getting my little brother my 29g tank for his birthday. I am relatively new to saltwater and could use all the advice I can get on how to set it up and what he will need. He really loves firefish but likes both the regular ones and the purples so I was thinking of getting him a pair of a M regular and a F purple firefish if you think that would be possible than how can you determine the sexes of firefish. Finally if any one out there knows how to breed firefish that would be great. Thanks.

Not sure that you can mix and match them without getting aggression between them. I'm pretty sure it has to be a mated pair.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks Carey
If I got the two types and put them together and and they were male and female would they mate or would they still just fight with each other. Thanks

I really have no idea what would happen. i think alot would depend on the fish. Some fish are just mean lol I also don't know how you would sex them, to me they all look alike.

Thanks
It seems like it will probably be hard but I'll just keep on trying and hopefully it will work.
