I don't think a figure 8 puffer should be in any less than a 20 gallon.

Minimum for F8's is 15 gallons for the first and 10 gallons for each extra, but I personally wouldn't put a F8 in anything less than a 20 gallon. They're incredibly active and inquisitive fish.

As for plants, there are a few with Java Fern being your best bet. If you google it there's a few articles that'll come up about it.

In the meantime, here's the best guide (and forum) for info on F8's: http://www.thepufferforum.com/forum/...in-focus/fig8/
