The manufacturers select a 'standard' size box. Most live bearers don't grow over 3inch and the boxes are like 6inch...
I made my own with 2 ferrero rocher plastic boxes. It has 2 levels spereatd by a bathing flower net. Everything is held together with rubber bands...
It cost me nothing.
You're not supposed to keep the female in the box for more than 72 hours. She WILL die over prolonged periods of staying in the box.
