Chris - I can't be sure why you marine tissue "exploded" but it may be a
problem with the tissue having too much water in them.  Some people working
in marine specimens, particularly larval and young, prefer to use sea water
when making 10% formalin instead of tap or distilled water.  You may want to
try that and see if it makes any difference.
