    Dotty dorid (Jorunna funebris). Feeds on sponges, so probably won't last long in a aquarium. They foul up the tank quite severely when they die.

    They are stunning Nudibranches. Love seeing them while diving but like @brentch said, they do not last long in aquariums without the correct specialized care.
