You might want to check out Mike Palmer's webpage on ordination, specifically the constrained ordination section: http://ordination.okstate.edu/
The main difference between constrained ordination techniques is the distances that are preserved. Redundancy analysis (RDA) preserves Euclidean distances, so in order to use it, you need to transform your OTU table with an appropriate transformation (e.g., Hellinger), after which a Euclidean distance calculation is appropriate. It also works best identifying linear relationships between environmental variables and species responses. Canonical correspondence analysis (CCA) preserves the chi-squared distance, which tends to emphasize common taxa, and looks for unimodal responses to environmental gradients. Distance-based redundancy analysis (dbRDA) accepts any distance matrix, allowing you to use non-metric distances, and then looks for linear relationships with distances and environmental variables.
Before applying these metrics, you'll need to understand their advantages and limitations, and then you'll need to make a decision about which combination of constrained ordination techniques and distance metrics are best for answering your questions. This is something you'll need to justify yourself, based on your own question, because different approaches are better at emphasizing different aspects of your data. I strongly suggest you study a copy of Legendre and Legendre (2012) for more information about these methods.
