What am I?

Hey people,

I walked in from work this morning to find a new creature in the tank. It is nocturnal apparently, because it made its way to hide when I flipped the lights on for a quick pic. I won as you can see This thing is 12 inchs at least when it stretchs out. Is this the Lettuce Sea Slug?

I think there is a possibility it is a ribbonworm (Nemertean worm) but there are so many varieties I don't know for sure.

My best guess would be a flatworm. Not a particularly attractive one, and quite a large one, but a flatworm nonetheless.

A pic (coloration is a bit different):





Lots of pics of different ones here:
