Body only size of "kings" and giants

I was curious about the body only (not including tail) size of adult male "kings" and giants. Could anyone tell me please?

29G - 1 orange fantail goldfish "Goldeen"

Always remember when reading about sizes cause there are mix up about lengths out there between inches & centimeters. In other countries they like to use centimeters and here in the US we use inches

I believe this male is a half giant. From what I've read, giants go to three inches.

Is that fish dead?

Hello! I'm a former fishkeeper and bettafish.com-er with a rekindled interest in the betta hobby. I don't have any bettas currently, but I'm brushing up on my fishkeeping knowledge with the intention of eventually bringing home another finned friend. ^_^

LOL no. He's very alive and swimming in his conditioning bowl for breeding right now. He had water in that baggie.
