Hi Lioness.:wave:

They get nippy and do nip like other puffers do. No, they shouldn't be kept with larger fish. They're best kept in a species tank only. Otos are the ones often suggested to be kept with dwarf puffers. Although there may be a chance that the otos will be nip, it is unlikely to happen if there are lots of hideouts for them to seek cover.:)

Puffers should be given snails as well to feed on as their beaks are likely to become overgrown making it difficult for puffers to eat well. They're likely to just starve to death because of overgrown beaks.:)

A 10 gallons would do it although I'm sure a 5 gallons is just as great.:) There may be a little nipping otherwise they're fine when kept together.
