What Power compact bulbs to get

My bulbs are about 6 months old now and I am not really sure about how long they are good for but I figured I would start looking. I have a 2x96 watt power compact setup on a single switch. Right now I have one 02 actinic and one 10k. What would your recomendations be on this. I really like the look of 20,000k Metal halide bulbs, I like blue look of it. Is there any bulb in power compact that is kinda like that. By the way my bulbs are linear pins like this ****

Thanks for your input
Josh

Coralife makes an awesome actinic that has a little more blue in it. If you do not have corals you could run one 50/50 bulb and actinic. This would really make it blue.
