Huh...cool looking, but I thought the flatworm eating nudi was the Bergia or something rather...(Black and Blue). I could be way wrong though.

Tusco - Welcome to Reef Frontiers!!!

The nudibranchs that nasher is referring to are the Chelidonura varians. Here is an article with an aquarists experience: Chelidonura Varians: The Flatworm Eating Machine (http://www.advancedaquarist.com/issues/may2002/short.htm) by Gregory Schiemer.

I think it is interesting that the nudibranch you posted a pic of eats these flatworms. I would have guessed it to be a soft coral eater, based on appearance. Very cool!

Berghia verrucicornis are the aiptasia killers.
