Puffers can't go with any other fish and you'll only be able to have two.

As for your other group, you'd probably be better doing 6-8 pencilfish OR 6-8 tetras and then the oto. With the pencilfish you'll need a lower pH (6.6-7) which you'll have to achieve naturally (chemicals can crash your tank) and they like having a heavily planted tank, but the tetras don't need anything special but they do need to be in a group.

You might be able to get away with otos and puffers. But its up to you if your willing to take that risk.
