    No need to apologize for questions! i dont think you could add anything with the dwarf puffer, but thats based on what ive read, not actual experience.

    From what I have heard, DP' pretty much rip anything in their tank to shreads.

    I would not recommend adding anything with the dwarf puffer.

    If I recall correctly DP's are highly territorial. Much like male bettas if you mix two males they will fight to the death. You can sometimes get away with a male/female pair providing there are tons of hiding spots, but you would need at least a 10 gallon to do that. I believe that DP's require 5 gallons per fish so in your tank only one would be recommended.

    Thanks for the info. What are some easy to care for live plants? That aren't to expensive?

    I'd start a new thread in the plant section.

    I can't help you with plants.

    I thought that puffers do fine with other puffers... 5 gallons per fish, no non-puffer tankmates, but they do okay with each other as long as the tank is heavily planted/decorated. (What I have read, no personal experience)
