Your right, @AdoraBelle Dearheart , pics are not clear enough to give any definitive answer. I was just explaining to you why I thought there may be some jelly like substance.

Then I need to get my new glasses checked. Lol! Goldfish eggs are round balls. Are these round balls? I’m just not seeing them, I guess.

Maybe because I use my IPhone. They should be born in the next day or so if water’s not too cold and they are goldfish eggs.

Feed them as soon as they start swimming around.

The following link has information about culturing food for baby fish. It's too late to make green water and infusoria but it does have a section on boiled egg yolk, under the heading "Emergency Fry Food". I would use that as a start and if you can get to a pet shop, buy some powdered fry food for egg layers. You can sprinkle a small amount of that on the surface and the fry will pick at it in conjunction with the boiled egg yolk.

After a couple of weeks on egg yolk you can add newly hatched brineshrimp.
