you may be thinking about color reversable leds, not two in one. when the current switches direction is switches color

Just match up the anode and cathode.  And make sure that the voltage and current are equal too.

first of all he wants two leds running off the one circuit
so in order to acheive the same brightness in both leds its important that they are the same voltage and current
then its just a matter of soldering the two anodes together, and the two cathodes together then treating them as one led
just stick it in and it should work
should :P
