Fancy goldfish are usually smaller than their cousins the comet. They range from 12-15" and still going.

Hi bobo,

short tailed goldfish are the smallest ones (Ranchu, LionHead, Pearlscales..). They rarely reach 10 inch long (including fins).
But long fins goldfishes may grow a lot! Seach for "Bruce - The giant goldfish" in google. Bruce is an Oranda and it's more than 15 inch long...

That's why we should keep than in 30+ gals (for each goldfish in aquarium).

OK??
Regards,
