My advice is to start with relative easily spawned fish from around the world , and observe and learn from those experiences. Gradually your knowledge base will increase over time; but, don't forget that you will continue to learn. I bred and learnt from my 1st spawning aged 16, I am now in my 60's and I am still learning
“That sounds like Tom Jones syndrome.
‘Is it common?’
“It’s not unusual.”

Welcome to Planetcatfish!
To follow on medaka's recommendations, look at the list of most-bred species reports, here: https://www.planetcatfish.com/common/my ... ?mode=blog. (Keep in mind that some of the frequently-bred species (like Hypancistrus zebra and Peckoltia compta) are not cheap, but are in high demand. Don't start with those). This includes all species from all continents.
And as medaka said, start your breeding projects with inexpensive, easy to find species; learn with those, then go on to more challenging species.
