tank heights

So I am looking to get a tank with a 24" base.

My choices are 12", 14", or 16"

For reference an Ada 60p supposedly has a 14" height.

Which would you go with? I'm not sure about 12". I have a 20long, and it seems like it gets cramped and overgrown in there pretty quick. Stems don't really reach a great proportion.

16" because of gravel and dirt if you are doing it. Then you end up with 14

I am leaning toward the 14". If Ada does it, it may not be the best idea, but it certainly isn't terrible...what a cop out right?
