Pipe organ coral care

Hi.
I recently purchased a pipe organ coral accidentally mistaking its polyps for the polyps on a green star polyp :/. I'd like to know there care requirements because I couldn't find any real useful information online. Any help would be great. Thanks.

These look really cool and are supposed to be easier to keep!

I found the pipe organ to be very difficult to care for. Mine died after 7-8 months, and after doing heavy research on google to find out why, I realized it was more challenging than expected. Good luck with yours. I think they are beautiful.
