Which puffer? Hard decisions...

Ok...so I need your guys help in hard decisions. Here is the run down I have one five gallon tank currently up and running, moderately planted currently housing two guppies and a lot of snails and one 20 gall tank sand bottom, plastic plants, couple of rocks and a castle.

1) I can either rehouse the guppies and snails into the 20 gall (thus being able to acquire more guppies and let snails breed more for puffer food) and put a dwarf puffer into the five gallon planted tank.

2)convert the 20 gall into a brackish tank a get a figure eight puffer

I have marine salt and everything so converting the tank would not be hard to do...there are no good LFS around me and none that sell DP or F8, so I am going to have to beg one of the stores to order one for me....suggestions?
