I traded my shark in last month and this is what I brought home. I had it sitting in a low circulating area and noticed yesterday that half of the tubes were closed. I moved it to the front of the tank on the sand where there is a ton of water flow. Anybody know the care of it as well? Thanks.

those don't appear to be pipe organ to me. Pipe organ has a hard red skeleton. Those look to be clove polyps.

Hate to say it, but I think that link was wrong. Or at least the pic was. All the pipe organ I have seen came from a reddish colored hard base characterized by multiple parallel tubes with a polyp extending from the end. That's how pipe organ got it's name. The polyps in the picture look to be coming directly off the rock itself. Also, since pipe organ tends to have parallel tubes containing the polyps, the polyps themselves tend to be in the same orientation, not randomly pointed in different directions. This is just my opinion, maybe someone else will chime in.
