Dhg will spread naturally, and may become a pain, but is thin and light looking.
Blyxa gets quite tall and thick and may cover more of your rocks then you like but tends to stay more compact.

Both can be trimmed so height isn't so much an issue.

Blyxa is a darker colour then dhg.

Any help at all, lol I couldn't choose so have both

Very nice setup, aquascape. What kind of overflow system you're running?
