Coraline will not grow with out good lighting, but the stuff that makes your live rock live really doesn't require light (or we couldn't put it in our sumps). So to answer your question yes and no. Your live rock will do it's job, but with out proper lighting your coraline algae and other "pretty" sutff will start to die off.

That can be pretty expensive so a good alternative is to buy half LR and half "dead Rock". Over time the LR will seed the dead stuff and it will all become LR.
I second that, you can save a nice chunk of change that way. I like hirocks.com for base rock(dead rock), nice shapes and density.
