Egg crate is the plastic material used in recessed fluorescent lighting to diffuse the light. You can get it in white sheets at the hardware store, it also comes in black for use as a frag rack, etc from reef suppliers.
Here is a pic.

Are you trying to keep him separated from your tank. In that case probably not the boxes are fairly large for that. there are breeding boxes which you can buy made of mesh which will do just that.

In that case I would say it would work. the likelihood that it could jump through one of those holes is really pretty slim. It will be fine.
