I'm not sure about the article you refer to but yes I have seen a few pictures of siamese twin or two headed fish. I have had several livebearer siamese twins myself but they never lived more than about a day. There is a picture in the book "genetics for aquarists" of some siamese twin guppies that actually matured. One of the twins remained small while the other grew up. A guy in my locl aqaurium club had some cichlids (I forget the species but I think they were rift lake) that had several siamese twin fish with multiple variations. As I recall his lived for a week or so.

I am fairly new to killies(April of this year), but I have seen alot of conjioned twins. I never could get a 2 headed fish to live but I did raise a guppy with 2 tails. I was hoping it was a genetic sport so I could get it to breed true but all offspring and even back breeding produced regular fry. I am sure I will see it to some extent in killies in the future.
