You cannot keep even two Dwarf Puffers in a community tank. They will eat the fins off of all your other fish.

I keep Dwarf Puffers in my planted tank along with amano shrimp and oto's which are really the only recommended tankmates for them.

I would like to invite you to vist my dwarf puffer site at: http://www.dwarfpuffers.com
I like that fauna combo :P

rain- They aren't brackish, 100% freshwater.
I have kept them in a large shoal in a heavily planted tank and they are just beautiful. But they will nip other fishes fins, so I would recommend keeping them as the only species in the tank.

Here is some good information and more links: Dwarf Puffer

compulsion i understand dwarf puffers are brackish but will they live in a tank with no salt?
ive seen these in planted tanks but i dont want to add any salt into my tank incase it starts to kill my aquascape.. and also will they kill my smaller community fish.. cardinals guppys etc

thanks
