Mushroom Corals

I have several fish, 1 coral, an anemone, feather dusters, crabs, snails... And I want to add a couple of mushroom corals...

What do you guys reccomend and why? Of course I'm looking for a combo of hardiness and color... blue would be great or green...

I use coral vite 2x a week and iodine...in addition to feeding with phytoplankton 3x a week.... Would this be sufficeint to care for 2 more corals?

I have to say Ricordea, they are by far the coolest mushroom ever, and my second favorite coral.

Lots of pretty blue 'shrooms out there. I love Ricordea also, but they can tend to be pricey, and do require (IMO) much brighter light than the "standard" 'shrooms.

There are some gorgeous Tonga Bullseye mushrooms out there in a range of colors, including some nice deep blues.
