I have not kept T. dolfussi but have read it is not a good choice for a beginner. But T. aoutii IS a good choice however. I have that species and it has proven to be quite tough and has done well for me. Other good species would be:
Archispirostreptus gigas - AGB, African Giant Black
Mardonius parilis acuticonis - Congo train
Ophistreptus guineensis - African Chocolate
These have done well for me as well. All are tough enough to survive most common beginners mistakes. They are also quite large and take well to being handled. I have managed to get the Mardonius to bred successfully.

I do recommend that you try to pick up a good millipede keeping book. These are the 2 best I have read:
viewtopic.php?f=31&t=42780
viewtopic.php?f=31&t=53397
Both have great general keeping information. The first book is geared for the European hobby while the second is more for the US hobby. But I highly recommend both!
