for a month or 2 it would be ok I guess, it is very narrow though! I hope we're talking plastic box with water and not cardboard box? how deep is it too?

I think you could do with finding something bigger, I think the length is ok as a starter but try to find something at least 30cm wide and 30cm tall. A plastic storage tub should do and they're cheap and easy to get hold of
