Can't see what is wrong with the code | PHP OOP mid-course Challege


class Fish {
    public $common_name;
  public $flavor;
  public $record_weight;

  function __construct($name, $flavor, $record){
    $this->common_name = $name;
    $this->flavor = $flavor;
    $this->record_weight = $record;

  public function getInfo(){
    return "A " . $this->common_name . " is an " . $this->flavor . " flavored fish.  The world record weight is " . $this->record_weight; . ".";

$bass = new Fish("Largemouth Bass", "Excellent", "22 pounds 5 ounces");
echo $bass->getInfo();

Can someone give me a line number or a possible issue here?

In the getInfo method, in the return statement, I'm seeing a semicolon after $this->record_weight, almost at the end of the statement. Could that be causing the problem?

Thank you! I didn't even see it. That should work!
