Which second ride should I get to alternate with my 20" Zildjian Medium Hollow Logo?

My band plays multiple genres and I really like the blend with these cymbals!

My current live cymbal setup includes: Zildjian
14" Quick Beat Hats c .80s
17" Thin Crash c. 70's
18" Thin Crash c. Late 70's (Hollow Logo)
20" Medium Ride c. Late 70's (Hollow Logo)

Should I go with a bigger size ride? 22"? Another 20"? Lighter?

This all sounds so samey, I get it, samey is safe, they're all good cymbals.
How about something a little different, still a Zildjian (I get that too) how about something a little K ish?
K's blend well with older A's. Samey, but some a little different. Be bold, take the next step.

You are right! I needed a little kick in the "Arse." LOL!

Starting off with something as middle of the road as a 20 medium, you need to go extreme in either direction to get a lot of contrast. Something real thin 22”+ or real thick like Z custom would be noticeably different. Or consider picking up another medium cheap and add some rivets for contrast/texture.
