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.

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.
