    THose look like Discosoma mushrooms.
    You cant ID mushrooms/corals based on colour as the apparent colour will depend on the individual tanks lighting, nutrients, trace elements etc.

    Regarding size - ive seen some get to around 10cm across, while others will choose to split before they even half that size.

    When I bought mine they said it was metallic orange spotted mushroom (Actinodiscus) or something.

    Besides lighting etc, the smear used also plays a massive role in what color the mushroom appears in pictures.
