Hi team

Just checking is the bigger tarakihi in the photo a good sized normal tarakihi or a small king tarakihi?

It's a king tarakihi. The 'dent' in the forehead and the black patch on the pectoral fin are indicative of king tarakihi.

I wouldn't say it is small either. Most of the king tarakihi I've seen have been about that size.

Thanks FishMan, I thought so. First one I have ever caught on the reef we were fishing, hopefully there are more there to be plucked from the sea.We get the odd one on a couple of spots at White but this is great.
