I think I know the kind of thing that you are talking about. Is it a square plastic thing to hang/float in the tank with a V shaped insert that the fry can fall through to avoid being eaten? If so, she may be stressed out and that is why she did not drop all her fry. Honestly, I have had guppies for years, and unless you have someone who will take the babies, or a ton of tanks, you will soon be overrun. I know it sounds mean, but just letting her be in the tank will be the least stressful for her. Yes, many of the fry will get eaten, but the strongest will survive. Even this way guppies still have a way of overrunning a tank. If you want to seriously breed them, a small breeder tank would be better than a nursery box. As for now, if you really want the babies, I would just let her get used to being in the box and try to keep stress down to a minimum. She should drop them sometime. If however she starts to look physically bad I would remove her and just let nature take its course.
