Thank you, Alina.
Perhaps damage could be lessened if the sample taken could be taken from a part of the coral formation that is verticle, if possible.  A sample taken from a horizontal location would be much more prone to being filled with sediment or parrotfish droppings.  There is so little coral left, the less damage the better.
