It's a polyclad flatworm. Not a nudibranch.Oh and important note: they eat snails.

Ron Shimek's Website... Flatworms here is where I found the stuff about the polyclad. It's near the middle and matches up with your worm almost to a T.

You get it from live rock or corals which are often wild harvested.

I've heard they get anywhere from 3-4" and even bigger in the wild. It looks to be about 3".

I'm not sure but I don't think it's a flatworm. Looks to have to much body mass. Not just the so called flat of a "flatworm".
