I've never kept sharks. My experience is limited to reef related livestock. I used to retail coral and fish for a couple years.
That said, there is no care for the egg, except for keeping it from harm.
The shark is going to take meaty foods once it hatches. I would try to get it to eat silver sides and krill. You could also try some ghost shrimp.
This is going to be very difficult from the moment it's born in that 55 gallon. You need a large sand bed and very little rock. They tend to beat themselves up on the rock, and you are going to need that rock for filtration.
The others are right. You don't want to start this in a 55 gallon. You are going to kill that shark IMO
