Unexpected goldfish breeding

My cousin in China has a thirty gallon tank with five goldfish in it. This morning, she woke up and found eggs in the tank. She gathered them and put them in a plastic container with some rocks and java fern. Do you think the eggs will hatch? If they do, how should they be fed?

The yellow water is caused by a medication added a few days ago.

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.

Oh wow! That's really neat.

I really know nothing about goldfish. If I had to guess you could probably feed them crushed up flake food for now and maybe some small live foods as well.

I'd cut some small slits in the container though so there's some water circulation through the container and the water quality stays good.

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )
