Husbandry

Milne-Edwards & Haime, 1850

Very special thanks for the first two photos of Madracis asperula to Rafael Mesa, Blue World fotos!

Madracis asperula, an azooxanthellate coral, is found in intermediate to deep-water fore reef environments, from 12-200 meters.

The coral seems to be non-sensitive respective fifferent temperatures, it is found in the cold Scotia Sea and just as in the warmer Caribbean Sea.
