Which Florescent bulb should I get

My tank is only 13" deep but 48" long which bulb would be the best for my tank which I plan to have a "few" corals and of course fish?

It depends on how many bulbs you are going to have...at least two I hope. I don't know much about the Zoo Med bulbs. If it were me, I'd go with URI bulbs and I'd use one actinic and one white actinic. This gives a nice color balance and corals seem to thrive under this combo. If you are set on Zoo Med, I'd probably suggest two of the 50/50's. JMHO.
