lighting question

First off...i'm a newby, but I have a 75 gal tank and bought a new light system for it yesterday. I got the GLO T5 HO with a capasity of two bulbs. I looked at the recommended bulbs and went with a Power glo bulb (white light) and a Marine glo (for blues). All I can say is HOLY CRAP!!!!! The blues that I can see on the rock, fish and water are increadible. I know you have a lot more experience with this, but I never really understood the fixation with lights until I turned these things on!!!!!! It's beautiful.

Thanks for the welcome ccCapt. I'm not looking to do corals yet. I need a lot more experience before im ready for that. But, I am interested in inverts. Any suggestions on what will do well with my current light?

Moving Larry`s answer to Timmy to his thread which was split.
