flatworm?

can anyone tell me what this lovely flatworm looking thing is? Is it a type of flatworm? It is about 2 cm in length and is beige and pinkish in colour. It is in my 28 gallon nano (which is just over a year old) and i have seen it a few times but it always slides away pretty quickly when i shine light on it. Only comes out at night

They are slow moving and only active at night, so algae grows on them. Plus the fact they are grey and brown means they blend in exceedingly well.

Hey, stop making fun of my IQ just because I have some algae growing on my feet.
