Hey therere when u say Puffy what sort of puffy do you mean? a dwarf puffer or an acutal puffer fish?
I have a dwarf puffer fish but i added my betta after my puffer fish had hit puberty (aprrently all DP's hit puberty :S and this is when they can get very agressive, and bitey.)
I only havea 30 litre tank mand my beta and puffer fish arent fighting at all, everything is ship shape x

Puffers are best solitary. Unless its a really big tank with lots of plants. They will get aggressive and attack other fish. Only be a matter of time before it goes after your betta,then no more betta. Best to give a puffer its own tank and a betta its own as well. Its iffy with bettas and tankmates,some may be okay with it,some not.

NO!! Puffers need to be alone, or with their own kind!! They will fight, and possibly kill your betta..
