You could maybe try some mushrooms. Orange cup corals do not rely on light for any energy, just target feedings three times a week. that may be an option as well.

Christmas tree corals do not rely on symbiotic zooxanthellae algae for nutrition so they should survive under NO lighting. However, as lando mentioned, they should be target fed frequently.
