dwarf puffers are best kept alone, if you keep one, it will eventually be alone anyway, since their territorial tendencies will eventually kill the other tank inhabitants. Snails are perfect for smaller tanks, an apple snail the size of a golf ball would be a decent centerpiece. Stay away from frogs, most need special care in terms of tank conditions and food. A live plant in your tank will help offset the large bioload your inhabitants have currently.

Also, did you cycle your tank prior to adding your fish? The cloudy water is usually a sign that the tank wasn't cycled and the cloudyness is a sign of a bacteria bloom because your water has a large amount of ammonia in it. The ammonia often stresses fish, especially fish like neon tetras to the point where they will perish.

I'm glad someone pointed out cycling. As I was reading through the thread I was guessing that the tank was never cycled which is the reason for the fish deaths and cloudy water. This is a great link on cycling:
