I have heard that these fish(pea puffer fish) prefer to live with only their own species, and will likely kill any fish that is not of it's species. I want to do this too but i am not sure if it is possible.

Pea puffers can be aggressive, not recommended to keep them with other type fish.
You should have 5 gal of water for each pea puffer and lots of decor to break up their line of sight.

Yah they are big fin nippers so with bettas it could get bad. I think they are cute too but I dont want to dedicate a 10g to just 2 little fish I could barely see.

I have heard that you can put 1 fish to 2 gallons, (5 fish in 10 gallons)

I had 2 in a 5 gal, it did not work out. One was always nervous and pacing up and down the glass.
I moved them to a 10 gal and that fixed the problem. I recently lost one of my puffers and added some ottos to the tank. The DP completely ignores the ottos, but ottos are the only fish that I have read about being commonly added to DP tanks with good results.
