You can keep a ricordea; just keep water quality good like you've been doing. Our rics were some of the first corals added after our 20 gallon cycled. They've done well for us. Mushrooms, zoas, palys, etc. should work great in your tank. If you like any LPS corals, you can keep some of the easier ones like candy cane, frogspawn, hammer, torch, etc. Keep these out of direct flow to prevent tissue damage, and for the euphyllias, give them space so they don't sting other corals.

How did you cycle? How are you testing? 6 weeks and zero nitrate seems a bit odd to me even if the rock was well cured.
