    Hi. 90 liters (around 24 gallons) really isn't a large enough tank for bigger fish. It's too small for an angel or for rainbows or even some of the larger gourami.
    Have you considered a large school of smaller fish? a nice sized school of tetra (there are so many kinds) would be really pretty in that tank.

    If you really like dwarf puffers, you could do a small group, 5-6, in a heavily-planted tank. But if you want to look at something else, the tetras that fishmommie mentioned are perfect. And depending upon your water parameters, there are many small fish in the characins (tetra, hatchetfish, pencilfish) and cyprinids (the dwarf rasbora species, small gourami species, all much more rare than the common species) that would be ideal.

    Water parameters means the GH or general hardness, and pH of your tap water, both of which you can ascertain from the municipal water people, probably on their website. It is much easier and safer to select fish suited to your water, than having to adjust the water parameters which is not always easy.

    Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
