It is almost 01:15 AM and ryt now while watching my Goldfishes carefully i found that they have laid eggs everywhere in the aquarium. I am so very very happy but am very scared too.. Haven't deal with any of these things before.. Please guys share everything which i should know before the egg hatches.. I do not want to make any mistake in taking proper care of them.

When they're born, they measure about 1/8 inch and are very fragile. The water in the tank that you keep them in should never be above six inches. If it is, the weight of the water may crush them. The ideal water temperature in the tank is approximately 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
After they hatch, you don't have to feed them for a few days. During this time, they will feed off of their yolk sac. This lasts for about two days at which time they will start swimming around looking for food.
When caring for goldfish fry, most owners feed them strained egg yolk for about two weeks. After this, you can start feeding them brine shrimp. It's important that you always have food available for them to eat. However, you also need to be careful that you don't pollute the water too much. It can easily be fatal to the fry.
You should never have fry in the same tank as adult fish. Goldfish will eat anything that fits in their mouth, and that includes their little fry. They will eventually grow in size, so you will need to have an additional tank ready to separate them when they're ready.
