Octopus finger leather question

My lfs has one, beautiful, it's about 7 to 9 inches tall. How hardy are these? , How easy is it to frag one? Is there anything special I need to know about it? He wants $90.00 for it so I don't want to get it and not be able to take care of it. Any help is appreciated.

I have one, that is now two huge ones. I have had it a year exactly this halloween. Very easy keepers but need alot of room to spread out. Easy to frag, just cut and paste...erm...glue.

I bought mine for about 50 at that same size, but geographically speaking, corals do not cost the same everywhere. When I frag mine, I use sharp scissors and cut off a branch.
