Assuming that both tanks are acceptable to you, I would go with the taller tank.
You could always put more substrate in it to raise the floor 2 inches (or lower
the water column 2 inches if you want to try to get something to flower,) but
there's no easy way to add height to a tank. You could also terrace the tank to
have short and tall areas.
