I am not familliar how sharks hatch, But i am pretty sure you should have let it break out on its own. They do move around before they are ready to hatch. Ya probably opened up too soon.

and what type of egg sack is that

Its a Chiloscyllium punctatum, Banded Cat Shark/Brownbanded Bamboo Shark egg..

If you take close look at the egg, you'll notice embryo inside the sack.. Depending on water flow ant temp. it can take up to 6 months for baby shark to hatch.

I think you should let nature take its course. Let the shark hatch by itself like it does in the wild. But I read that the hard part in keeping shark eggs is getting the baby to start eatting once it is hatched. Good luck to you.
