What watt light?

I am a newbie to saltwater and have only put the substrate in my new tank. If I eventually want to move to keeping corals, what watt light should I need for a 29 gallon? Is there a specific type I need? Thanks for the help!

For a small tank i would use a 175watt along with some actinic supplementation with PC, VHO or T5. It wouldn't have to be a lot either, but if you chose not the use actinics, then a 175watt would be fine to keep nearly any corals.
