I have a 20 gal aquarium and I am hoping to stock it with some species of freshwater puffers

Can an Amazon puffer live with a dwarf puffer as a tank mate?

If not, what would be a good combination of freshwater puffers for my 20 gal?
I’m looking for something that is bigger than pea puffers but will live happily in a 20 gal

I have the means to feed them and am willing to take care of the amazon’s beak if needed

I currently own a pea puffer and he is happily living in one of my two 10 gals

I use the other 10 gal for culturing snails

(I always have the option to separate the fish if things don’t work out)

Amazons get like 5 or six inches and need about a 20 gallon alone. Pea puffers, from what I've been told, can be mean little things. I looked into getting them and apparently to even have other Peas with them they need the tank to be heavily planted just so they don't really see each other.
I would stick with either the Amazon, or maybe a Figure 8 puffer. I've kept 2 Figure 8's together in a 20 gallon before. (Though I was advised not to) and they would play together.

Don’t figure 8 puffers need brackish water?
