Question G-key cap sizes

I ordered my K95 RGB Cherry MX Red keyboard and I was wondering what the key cap size is for the 18 g-keys (macro keys?) because I want to replace them with those nifty novelty ones. I dont need a link to where to buy the novelty ones because I think that's against the rules but I just am having troubling finding the size of them. Are they standard? Will any keycap work? I'm a n00b here.

any keycaps will work but the Gkeys use shorter keycaps.

its ok to link keycaps since Corsair doesnt sell keycaps. Jsut dont link a G910 or a Chroma.

I've heard that these don't fit the K95 RGB too well https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalK..._does_not_fit/

Max might've changed the kit they sell since then. Here's the disclaimer on the website about them:

"Corsair K95 RGB 18 macro keys section uses non standard keyswitch spacing. Therefore, our standard size keycap will be a close fit with slight rubbing against each other. However, it will not cause the keycap to stuck down."

Do you know of any off the top of your head that would fit and are along the same lines (Backlight novelty keycaps)?

Most keycap producers make standard size keycaps for standard layouts and spacing.
