I wouldn't put them in the box at all, it places too much stress on the fish. Mine wouldn't even drop fry in the box.

You could just get a clump of java moss or some sort of floating plant like hornwort for them to hide in. When I had fry they all hid in them. Most of them survived... and then I was overrun with little babies :/

I'm sure the fry will find somewhere to hide. Maybe, if you can, add some more plastic plants. And make sure the fry can't get sucked up your filter if you have a HOB filter.

What are you planning to do with the fry if you save them? The tank is too small to house more fish.
