puffers

HI,
I have an empty 10g tank and a stocked 30g but I wanted to know if there were any freshwater puffers or other cool fish to go in the 10g.

Not to my knowledge, think puffers need a bigger aquarium than just a 10.

I'm not an expert by any means but you may be able to but one dwarf freshwater puffer in the tank.

As a matter of fact there is if you search in the fish profiles section you will find a great write up on a freshwater puffer

You could also get a singe red eye puffer, if you can find one. Be prepared to feed crunchy food (snails, shrimp, crabs) to any puffer you get to wear down the beaks.

Pea puffers? 2 in a 10 gallon works

Two pea puffers would be ok. If you get them at the same time, you probably shouldn't have issues with aggression
