I think the box will work, I raised a stray fry I found in one, maybe put a couple floating leaves for cover and keep it off to the side out of direct light
I put in there bit of salvinia. I gonna post updates on her.

+1. Just make sure you don't allow excess food or fish waste to build up. Breeding boxes like that do not receive any near the water circulation or filtration the rest of the tank does and water conditions in that small of a volume can become horrible quickly.

Sounds similar to the peacock fry I mentioned, he doesn’t sink but it swims like it’s trying not to sink mostly using its pectoral fins. I think if you do what WYite and I said, that will give it the best chance, just watch and see if it’s eating. It make take a few days to a week to settle in due to all the moving around
