That's the good part. The reef rubble is for filtration only, so no lighting is needed. If you wanted to do a fuge in there, than it would be a different story.

No lights needed. The LR rubble is full of tiny crevices that water can get into. It has areas of low to now flow where anerobic bacteria can grow. These are the bacteria that turn nitrate into nitrogen, completing the cycle.
