It sounds like the egg is dead and a fungus is taking over it. HOWEVER, here's how you can check the egg: Get a high powered or bright flashlight, remove the egg and shine the light through the middle of it from behind. If the embryo is still alive, you should be able to see the little shark moving inside along with the yolk and the liquid inside should be clear. If it looks like soup inside, unfortunately, the egg is dead which is why it if fungusing over.

Hope this helps

+1 with Andy !! As well, what are your parameters in the tank, light periods, other inhabitants ?

Its 130 gallon tank. I got one foxface in there and a chocolate star fish that is doing great. Since I have only owned the shark egg for a week now. Does that mean I might have baught it dead?

Parameters ?

Edit : How much research have you put into this ? Are those plastic plants in the tank ?

I have read stuff on them and I know I'm going to need a new and bigger tank. I have been looking to get one but right now I just got 130 gallons. 2 fluval eco 6w lights. I also checked my water and everything was good. I have a couple plastic plants and about 60lbs of live work if not more
