Fire fish

I have 2 red firefish in my 72 gallon aquarium but I keep reading about people keeping small schools. That being said I have also read that you can't keep more than one in a tank.

Thoughts?

I didn't know there were purple ones when I got the red ones. Would I be able to add 2 more purple ones? Or are they similar to clowns in the sense that my current 2 would kill any new additions of the same family.

If I am not able to have the fancy purple ones does anyone have any suggestions for a reef safe non aggressive purple fish?

Current stock:

3 azure damsels
2 red firefish
2 bangaii cardinals

1 long spine urchin
1 brittle starfish
2 blood red shrimp
1 cleaner shrimp
Snails/crabs galore

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Black Cap Basslet

Ive seen one at my LFS, Proby not the same one, but was defiantly a Basslet. It was a bright purple. Was a very beautiful fish. Would stand out like white on rice for sure.
