By mini puffer, it is probably a dwarf puffer, which is freshwater.. A pair can live in 10 gallons, heavily planted like a betta sorority. This is the only puffer that thrives in fresh water.
However it could also be a young similar figure 8 puffer, another common species which is similar looking, but grows bigger and needs to be kept in brackish conditions of 1.005-1.008SG. They also need 15 gallons each.
If you are getting the fish OFL said, you will need at least a 125 gallon (six foot long) tank. Large fish need large spaces.
