Difference in pay between big and small private credit funds?

Is the difference in pay that much between big funds like (KKR Credit, Ares Credit, HIG Credit, etc.) and smaller funds (Maranon, deerpath, etc.)? Any insight would be appreciated.

Coming from a smaller fund, yes lol. Also depends on strategy (senior only vs. 2L, mezz, equity coinvest, etc.)

Is the difference drastic? Which strategies tend to pay more? Also, how small is your fund compared to something like Maranon? I really appreciate the help.
