Hi FayeS, they will be fine in the box. I also have one of those breeder box and i secure it to the side of the tank with some algae magnets. They don't need any plants in the box but would be a good idea for the tank, if you don't have any already, real or fake will do.. As newguppygirls said, you need fry food, Hikari's First Bites is an excellent fry food. You can crush your own regular flakes/crisps to a powder, i used to, but i find this food much better. You need to feed them 4 times a day for the first 4-8wks. They should be big enough then to accepted 'regular' food. You still might need to crush it slighty...
I am currently raising 50 guppy fry to trade for credit at my lfs
