How do I care for sympodium?

One of my orders online were mixed up so I ended up getting a frag of sympodium for free..however I've never heard of it as it is infrequently imported. How do I care for this soft encrusting coral?

I just don't want to kill it as people are selling it for $50+ a frag.

 

Here is a sample pic (not mine, blue coral like xenia/polyps):

Just put in the 7 or so frags I got in various places, and will see how they do. (5:20 Pm)

 

Update: All pieces in my tank have opened up and they are the same blue green color as the ones pictured.

I picked one of these up today. Any tips? Can I do a iodide dip before I put it in my tank?

I got a small frag of this about 6 months ago. It was probably less than 1/2 in square when I got it and its maybe 1 in square now. Its always open and looks great but in my experience is not a fast grower.

mine recently closed up for a few days and when my emerald crab stepped over them yesterday they exploded into the tank. water is perfect and everything else is fine so not really sure what happened
