    Welcome to the forum :)

    If you're referring to corydoras habrosus, they'll need a 15g minimum with 6+ of their own species.

    You can do up to 3 pea puffers though.

    okay. i was reading up on them on here and saw that they can be in a 10g tank but thank you. also, can i have other fish with puffer fish?

    I've read you can have otos with them but you'd need a 20g min since otos are also shoaling fish and need to be in a group of 6+. Other types of fish are too risky and so in a 10g, I think it's best to stick with just the pea puffers.

    Welcome to fishlore!
    Agreed with el337, salt and pepper cories are not suitable for a 10g, neither are otos. If you want dwarf puffers just get DPs.
