Nudibranch

I went out of town to shop at FS and purchased a purple nudibranch. I asked if there were any particular characteristics to keeping the nudibranch and they told me no. Now that I've done a little research I've found that they in fact can be difficult to keep. Any advice??

Not sure, but the purples might be the ones that only eat sponge. Make sure you research it's dietary requirements, some are very specialized feeders.

I think they feed on flatworms

There are many foods designed for angels that have marine sponge as their primary ingredient, howver, I have no idea whether the nudi will eat it or not, Another option is to purchase a sponge from the LFS every so often and place it in your tank for the nudi to eat, once it has been consumed or dies it can be replaced.
