    A feather duster is a non-photosynthetic filter feeder. They don't need light. I have tons of them growing in the shady parts of my tank.

    You can get a sun coral. They are non photosynthetic so you will have to feed it meaty foods by hand.

    You can train them to open up at the same time of day. Just feed them at same time everyday and they will figure out the schedule.
