Someone suggested the use of modeling clay that is resistant to salt
water as a method for the repair of injuries to corals from the taking
of small samples.  I dont really think repair is the right terminology
to use, I think perhaps the use of something like clay to patch over
sites were samples have been removed  from corals may help to retard
invasion by microbes.  Any thoughts on this and does anyone know of
another method??
