I'm a total amateur and never kept either if these fish so this is just a guess but I think it looks like a Hongi.

I'm sure the expert IDers will tell us for sure!!

I have one identical to that and I've been stuck in the same debate. How old is the fish?

2" is probably around 6-8 months old. Never can really go by that because when one is the dominant male they grow faster than others sometimes.

In addition to the dorsal fin, Hongi's usually have orangish pigmentation in the facial area, top portion of the body and along the under belly, and usually yellowish pelvic fins. I'm either not seeing those traits in the photo's or the this fish hasn't developed them yet.
