They squirt when messed with, sometimes quite far, and the eyes are quite capable of absorbtion.

The big gloves float while you're trying to work, and the fingers are so large it's hard to grip anything. I believe there is actually an over the elbow latex/plastic type, very thin. But I don't know a source.

One more caution: use eye protection when working to frag a stony coral, especially using a dremel. Coral has been considered as a medical grafting material, and live coral reproduces from small cells: keep it out of your eyes...not to mention the nematocysts [mini-harpoonlike cells that sting.]
