small nudibranch?

I just went to my LFS and bought some turbo snails, and in the tank was a tiny thing that looks like a nudibranch, but is about a half inch in length. I asked the kid if he knew what it was, he said no and asked if I wanted it so I said sure so he threw it in with the turbos(free, my favorite word) any ideas what it could be?

It seems to be red or purple in front with a yellow rear half.

good luck. There's a lot of pages of slugs on that site. I couldn't find mine until i post a picture here and then it was identified. I took the scientific name and then found it.

Ok, I looked through the site and wow there are just too many pics, but it seems very similar to ercolania sp.3 except in color, mine has a yellow rear and a reddish or pinkish front. The site doesn't say what they eat or if they are pests or anything, anybody have any info on them?
