personally i like both but they both have their merits. both have a dense growth pattern and best shown when their nodes are allowed to grow to maturity. Probably not the answer you were wanting but i cant decide which is better either

Fissidens are a completely different beast and beautiful when established. I recommend allowing all three to grow in a part of their tank without being moved around as such. You will see how gorgeous they all are.

Thanks for the reply citydweller. I'm going to give peacock the first shot since there is a seller very close to me.
