All organisms used in the restoration were injured, abraded, or detached from the reef and being buried by sand or deposited at the base of the reef. Corals with disease and coral eating snails were also collected and diseased portions of the corals and snails were first removed. Coral and anemone-associated fish such as humbugs, chromis and anemonefish were transported with their host.
