All puffers (save the dwarf or pea puffer) eventually need to be kept in brackish water. I'm thinking a pea puffer would be too small to house with your cichlids once your cichlids reach their adult size. Just what I've read...
I just noticed you had asked a very similar question in another thread so pardon me for repeating what you already now know! ;)
