Just bought a orange sponge today...

Hi guys, I just bought a orange sponge today any idea are they hard to keep? Any issues I need to look out for? Are they hard to keep or are they hardy?

I know I should have checked first before I buy them but the orange color it produces is just too striking I can't resist.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Thanks.

Dont let it come in contact with air. Most sponges will die if exposed to air. But I guess your LFS told you that.
