A more appropriate question would be how much wattage on the bulb? What type lighting system?

You can keep non-photosynthetic corals with no light whatsoever, so the answer to your question is "yes". Is this for your FOWLR? What fish are in there? With your lighting, I'd stick to something that needs to be fed.

There would be very few corals you could have with that lighting. The ones that HN1 was talking about would be about all you could have with that light. Orange sun polyps would be a good example. As soon as you could a lighting upgrade will be needed.

leathers are good corals to have with hardly any light, and there are some that are not photosynthetic.
