suggestions of what corals i could add

I have been adding corals mainly softies but considering compatibility and what can be saftly placed is confusing .
I'm looking first something that adds colour but also more of a colonial animal that will grow or spread.

I don't know your light situation but it seems like you have enough light for some montipora. Either capornicis, digitata, undata, or Danae would look good and they come in great colors.

Most LPS are low to medium light and can't tolerate high lighting without a long acclimation. Everything seems ok where it is. If you want to try a monti cap, I would place it pretty high up. Eventually, it's going to shade out what is under it though. Like corals can be touching each other, like 2 different kinds of zoas, or 2 different colored montipora caps, but things like bubble corals may be damaged by favia, and so on.
It's probably better to ask about specific corals.
