What would you like to know? They are a nudibranch and I am pretty sure they cannot be kept in an aquarium not very helpful I know but they are pretty incredible creatures...

These invertebrates can't be kept in captivity. They feed on portugese man o war and other venomous cnidarians so that makes feeding difficult. They are venous too so that is another major problem

I asked my LFS about them once. His response was.. Looks like some sort of nudibranch that would be extremely difficult to not only get, but to keep alive due to an incredibly particular diet.

They hold the poison in the little spines. They are actually quite dangerous to hold. Very beautiful creatures though!

Haha! Yes! They are very venomous! They can be found off the coast of Australia and Africa I believe.
