I would wait untill they look squared out, see the thread http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums/f82/livebearer-pregnancy-196771-new-post.html

it has pictures and lots of other info, putting a female into a breeeders box isnt bad, you just need to wait untill she looks square

I don't use breeders boxes because of the possible complications and putting fry in them for weeks causes them to grow slower.
I use a 10g tank for birthing and leave fry in there until I can put in my 20g to grow big enough to sell, or let them give birth in main tank and pull out fry as they're born.
