No, dwarf puffers are way to small to be with those fish.
You could set up a 10 gal tank to house two of them.

dwarfs really need a species tank with like a few corys and otos and shrimp tops. community fish will get nipped, large ciclids will eat them and get there insides damaged in the process. puffers and "in between" types of fish.
