Sea slug pics request

If any of you have sea slugs can you post pics of them for me? For some reason I really like them.

I've seen purple ones at low tide. But the common ones under the rocks at the beach are disappointingly similar to terrestrial slugs. Not much to see most days.

Yeah, people do keep them. But I understand the risks are many so they are often skipped over in favor of other invertebrates.

I heard sea slugs secrete a poison when stressed which could potentially kill every other living organism in the tank.
I believe that is why they aren't so popular in aquaria.
