another MH lighting ?

I currently have 2x400W MH's w/2x96W PC's w/actinics, the MH's are running 2x10,000K coral vue bulbs. I am after a more blue tint and am wondering if I switch to 2x 20,000K bulbs would my corals and anemone still thrive?

My corals: 1 frogspawn
1 hammer
1 toadstool and finger leathers
1 goniopora
1 bubble
1 brain
And 1 green carpet anemone

Also will the bright color fish still seem as bright with 20,000K bulbs?

I am using 20K hamiltons. They have a blue tint to them and my anenomes are doing just fine with them.
