    I have 4 red fire fish and want to get a purple fire fish. Does anyone have any experience with these two together? I have a 110 gal tank.

    I had 2, one red and one purple. But they both ended up dying on me due to a water param issue. Never had any issues with them together though

    I had two 2 red that liked to hide on me so I added 1 red and 3 purple they stayed at opposite ends of the tank for a week or so then started schooling together and were always out swimming.
