My water now is soft too. My anti-livebearer thing started when we had hard water, they were a bit too happy...
I haven't had babies from mine now in well over a year. Think like late 2019, early 2020? Was the last batch of baby platies I had.

Problems with them in soft water is theyre more prone to problems. My mollies particularly do end up fighting fungal infections quite often. Treat it, goes away, comes back a couple weeks later. It's a cycle and it's not fair to the fish. I won't want to keep more with my water as soft as it is.

If I had harder water, I'd be over the moon to keep a nice colony of something like goodeids or fancy wild endlers or swordtails.

Only livebearer I can really do is least killifish (not actually a killie). I'm juuust in the GH range for them at 125ppm

Going through the dreaded diatom phase now. I've also added a powerhead for additional circulation since it's such a large tank.
