50+ Flower Rock Anemone Babies help!

So I just recieved my order form aquascapers.com of 2 rock flower anemones and a third free one and I noticed something
Small white speckles stuck to the bag
A closer looked revealed them to be dozens of newborn baby Rock anemones

How do I place them in the tank in order for them to survive and grow?

If you have that many I would get a 10g to keep them in till they get bigger than trade them at your pet shop for credit
I just traded around 20 urchins for credit and I'm still finding more

Hahaha I just bought another rock flower nem and it did the same thing! Only two babies though. I have them in a cup with holes clipped to my tank. One looks great, he's attached and open, the other doesn't look so good. My app won't let me post a pic though. Says I'm at my quota. I don't know what that means.

Here ya go! It's a pic of them in the bag. You can see the edge of the mommy nem, then the white guy near the bottom is a baby (he's near a bit of algae) and slightly above that to the right is the other baby but he's upside down. My lights are out so ill take a pic of the cup contraption tomorrow. How are your baby nems doing?
