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.

dwarf puffers would probably atack or kill your cichlids they should only go in a species tank im pretty sure unless its a really large tank probably 75 to 100 gallons. this site tells you pretty much everything you need to know about them Dwarf Puffers : Home

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.
