mixing MH bulbs with different kelvin

Hello everyone,
my current lighting setup over my 90g 48"x 24" tank consits of 2 10k 250w MH in-line and in the middle of the hood and 2 96w 10k 03 actinics 2 in front and the other in the back of the hood .
I would like to replace 1 of the 10k MH bulb for either a 14k or a 20k to get more of a bluer look and make the color pop on some of my sps and zoo's , my question is would the lighting blend even? or one side of the tank would look bluer and the other whiter? and over all is this a good idea?
thanks in advance,

It will look a litle wierd on one side. I would replace the bulbs with (2) 14K bulbs if you can.
