dwarf puffer and shrimp

Just came into owner ship of a 5gal tank kit with heater filter and light. I was curious if I got a dwarf puffer if I could include a few cherry or ghost shrimp. I know they eat snails I was sure if he would eat them either.

It depends on the puffer's personality. If you want to do that though you should make sure there is some kind of moss the snails could hide and and I would introduce them to the tank first. That way if they start to breed then even if the dwarf puffer does eat a few they would just replenish the numbers
