I read that they can grow very fast, up to 2cm per month in their first year.
Tha would be really unusually fast. A couple of varieties can get close to 8 inches in a year but even that is unusual.

8 inch FH is too big for a 60 gal IMO.

Yep, it's just what I read, I have no personal experience with them. Pretty safe to say though that even if he gets a small 2.5" juvie it could outgrow a 36" tank very quickly.
