livebearers in same tank

are there any livebearers that shouldn't be kept with other livebearers? to my understanding, all of the common ones (guppies, mollies, platies, and swordtails) can live together, but what about the other kinds?

A few days ago I bought a Golden Halfbeak which is a livebearer also and the guy I spoke with a the store said they are fine with other livebearers. Id say all livebearers can be kept together, just with males when there arent enough females they will fight over the females.

18L Fry and guppy/endler tank
4 platy fry, 3 guppys, 4 endlers

10G Molly tank
1 Female dalmatian, 1 female koi, 1 female platinum silver,1 female platinum silver lyretail, 1 male koi lyretail

17G Community tank
3 Harlequin Rosbora, 1 female galaxy blue platy,1 male bronze gold platy, 1 female hawaiian platy,1 female sunset platy, 1 male twin bar platy, 1 male two tone(blue and red) platy, 1 female red wag platy, 2 platy fry, 1 bristlenose catfish

Like above all livebearers will go in the same tank together. But either all males or females, because the males will fight and they will crossbreed!

I have not lost my mind! I just can't find it
5 gallon (Baby Guppies) 25 or more baby guppies
10 gallon (Guppy Galore) 1 male and 2 female guppies
