According to the screenshots at the moc site, yes.

Documentation at the site appears to be weak and the forums are close to inactive, but maybe this link will put you in the right direction if you can find the configuration file it refers to.

Edit: By the way, I can see what you mean about that blue.

Set default theme in .moc/config via
# Theme file to use.  This can be absolute path or relative to           
# /usr/share/moc/themes/ (depends on installation prefix) or
# ~/.moc/themes/ .
# Example:    Theme = laras_theme
#Theme =

# The theme used when running on an xterm.
# Example:    XTermTheme = transparent-background
#XTermTheme =
P.s.: This has been necrobumped because it is still without an answer but currently the first entry on Google for "moc change colors".
