I wouldn't get very many, maybe 5-10 tops. It depends on what kind of filter you have. Also, do you have an air pump for the tank?

I just have a casual filter top fin 10. My water is very soft though. I really just like the sunset dwarf platies. I dont have an air pump but My filter puts bubbles in the tank.

Do you think that the small little green puffer fish would go ok in a community tank? The puffers only get 1 inch.

Nope. Chances of nipping is there. A 10g however can support 3 DP's by themselves.

Puffers aren't suited to the community tank at all unfortunately.

I wouldn't put any mollies in there - they get too large.

I'd go for 3 DPs or 3-4 platties.

I had a 10gal tank with 3 mollies and they were fine. But i don't know what happened but all my mollies dies of swim bladder disease but none of my fish did! It was strange but i didn't ever check the levels but i think it was the heat fluctuation. they will do fine. don't worry.
