How big can a nudibranch grow?

Most of the nudibranchs that I've seen thus far are rather small probably less than 100mm but this spanish dancer which we saw on our 20 Jan ReefWALK beats them all.

Since many of them are brighly coloured, which indicates that they don't taste nice, why aren't most of them of such sizes? hmm...

Oh was that the same one spotted by Kim Yong? It's not a Spanish Dancer, but probably a Dendrodorid of some sort.
