What should i get ?

Should I get 4-6 heteromorpha rasboras and 3 albino Cory catfish , or should I get 2-3 dwarf puffer fish ? I can't decide it's really hard , oh and the tank is 10 gal. Please help me decide

If you decide on the rasboras and cories I'd recommend going with a smaller cory type. Panda and pygmy cories are a little better suited for a ten gal.

A puffer should be kept alone. They are very aggressive and territorial.
