Sorry but if you are only breeding livebearers to this point, you are not really breeding fish.
( Livebearers only need water and food to make babies and they do all the work
) If you have no experience with breeding egg laying fish, may I suggest you do some research on breeding them before going after the hardest ones to breed. Truth is the breeding isn't the hardest part. The raising of the fry is. See what's involved from there and then decide which fish you would like to try.
A good beginner egg layer are the zebra danios. If you can get the fry to grow, then you can move on to more complicated fish like barbs and tetras. Their fry are are a bit more challenging. Then Gouramis, Bettas, then Killies, catfish, etc. and the list goes on.
Hope this helps
