Coral ideas

I'm looking to find some kind of coral that will spread kinda fast but I don't want all the same all over .
I have 2 different kinds of zoas ,
It was apparently pipe organ when I bought it but it turned out being a orange clove polyp .
I have a small hammer coral frag and a small candy cane frag .

What could I put in to spread ?

Leather corals grow pretty quick but be careful what you wish for.

Be careful cause they will spread too fast and crowd everything else ?

How fast could 2 small frags of zoas spread ?
They are both have 5-6 heads .
The candy cane is approx. 2" dia .

I also have a Hollywood stunner chalice ,
It looks nice but I think it would be better if it was bigger .

Red monti cap has grown really fast for me.. Probably outdone by zoas and only second to my xenias. Got a 3 inch frag in March and its now over 5 inches with all kinds of new ridges. Love it.
