Cut a gallon jug in half...poke holes throughout (small enough so fry can't escape) and clip it to the edge of your tank. A little ghetto but it works.

fry boxes

cut plenty of 2 ltr bottles off about 2/3 rds way up then make tiny holes in bottle so circulation can happen and flot them in tank changing water about every day so no ammonia build up

You could use clothes pins. Or those big clips for stacks of paper.
