I think my shark egg broke :(

My shark egg a few days ago has a nice round yoke in it and I clipped it in my tank with a power head blowing at it. Today i look and it looks like a pile of broken yoke in the egg and there are little bits and peices floating around in it. Did the yoke break? is this comman because if so I dont want to get another one just to be let down again. How do i make the call if its dead or not? what do i do?

Interesting, I didn't know shark eggs could be bought, I really didn't know sharks laid eggs. What kind of shark?

I took the egg in to get it looked at by my lfs and they said that I was not likly responsible for the egg breaking (eventhough im sure i am) and they replaced it for me with a new egg that is much further along, the shark inside is about 4-5" it seems like and i can already see all of his markings and color.
