New critters in LR! Coral suggestions?

My 12 gal nanoreef has been set up for 2.5 months & I finally spotted my first sipunculan. The body is deep inside the LR & only it's proboscis sticks out. It's really cool!
So far things are going OK, I had a few ups & downs at the beginning (lost some critters), but things seem to be settling nicely.
I am hoping to get corals in March (need to do more research first), I have a PC flourescent bulb (Eclipse 12 system) will this be enough light?

It's full spectrum 13W (5000K)
The tank is 17" top to bottom with a 2" sand bed.

My coralline algae is thriving

With a 13w bulb, I think you need to stick to polyps and shrooms.
