How Many Species have You Succesfully Bred?

I was reading a Saltwater Aquarium magazine and came across an article about these two fishkeepers who are having a contest to see who can breed the most species of fish successfully. One guy is well over 100 species in one year! So I was wondering, how many have you succesfully bred and what kinds?

Personally, I have never bred fish. I'm hoping to gain more knowledge though and once I can actually keep fish alive and happy, then I might branch out and breed. So tell me, how many species have you successfully bred (bred for and raised the fry) and what species? Pictures are welcome as well.
