Two thing to consider:

If you go with just a single light (50/50) you are basically limited to on/off light cycles. I would prefer 2 smaller lights, one actinic, one high K, so you can "stagger" the lighting some and simulate morning noon and evening

Second thing is with a smaller tank and low light corals, you don't need PC (although they do give more light for later coral choices) but if you want to keep costs low initially, regular Fluor. marine bulbs will work. You can always upgrade later.
